Ece [A-Jay] grew up in Turkey, went to Koc University in Istanbul for medical school, and moved to Madison, WI in 2016 to do research with UW IR department. She matched into UW Radiology, did her surgery preliminary year at UW, and at some point lost her cold receptors that her Mediterranean genes used to transcribe. She finds Madison a calm, yet still fun place to live after Istanbul. She enjoys hiking, yoga, table tennis, billiards at Great Dane, reading, and watching documentaries.
