My research lies at the intersection of philosophy and economics. I focus on the normative questions around markets, international trade and socio-economic rights. I am also interested in democratic theory, issues of migration, Marxism and critical theory.
I studied economics at Middle East Technical University (METU) and philosophy of economics at Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR). Between 2010 and 2015, I wrote my doctoral thesis entitled ''In Defense of a Democratic Account of Human Rights'' at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Since then, I worked as a project assistant in United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Turkey office and as a tutor in International Studies Bachelor Program at Leiden University. In summer 2017, I took up the position of University Lecturer in the Institute for Philosophy at Leiden University.
