About

Welcome. I am Derya Akkaynak, a passionate diver, engineer, oceanographer, and most recently, an urban beekeeper from Cambridge, MA.

Currently I am at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama, studying the beautiful wing patterns of Heliconius butterflies in a research team led by Dr. Owen McMillan.

On this blog, I scribble about books, science, travel, nature, food, photography and sometimes Turkish politics, mostly as notes to myself.
