I am an Assistant Professor at Koç University's College of Administrative Sciences and Economics, where I lecture at the International Relations Department, and Computational Social Sciences graduate program. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs of Harvard University, a postdoctoral research fellow at the Blavatnik School of Government of the University of Oxford, and a visiting scholar at the Mortara Center for International Studies of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. I hold a Ph.D. degree in International Relations/Political Science from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID), an M.Sc. degree in International Relations from METU, and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Bilkent University. My research interests lie in the areas of international political economy, international development, international financial institutions, investment arbitration, computational social sciences including agent-based modeling, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI) governance.
My research on AI usage in social sciences has been awarded the EU's Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowship (click for the CORDIS page of the project), as well as the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey’s International Fellowship for Outstanding Researchers. In October 2019, I founded the MA-Computational Social Science Lab (MA-CSSL), which is an interdisciplinary research laboratory bringing together researchers from multiple disciplines including economics, computer science, history, law, political science & international relations.
My work has been published in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals such as Economics & Politics, Journal of International Dispute Settlement, Journal of World Energy Law & Business and New Perspectives on Turkey, among others.
