Ahmet was motivated to pursue a career in entomology because of his interest in the role of beneficial insects can play in improving the environment and protecting crops in a natural way.

 

“I believe insects keep important secrets, not only about our planet but also the universe. This motivates me to observe them closely. Beneficial insects contribute to the well-being of humans and of our natural world. Using beneficial insects to protect crops is the most sustainable path towards food safety, since they are important vectors for protecting soil and plant health with zero toxicity.”
