I am a philosopher of economics working at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Helsinki. I am a member of the Centre for Philosophy of Social Science (TINT).
I have a PhD from the Erasmus School of Philosophy, Erasmus University Rotterdam (The Netherlands). After earning my BSc. and M.A. degrees in economics at Ankara University (Turkey), I completed the MPhil program in Philosophy and Economics at the Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE). My PhD thesis supervisors were Jack Vromen and Maarten Janssen. I defended my thesis against a committee that included Mark Blaug, Uskali Mäki, and Robert Sugden as its members.
Before coming to Helsinki, I worked as an Associate Professor of Economics at Bahçeşehir University (Istanbul, Turkey). Apart from my academic writing, I also write for a wider audience. My opinion pieces were published by Wall Street Journal Turkey, Business HT and TEPAV Blog. I used to write policy notes for TEPAV (Economic Policy Research Foundation Turkey).
