About Me

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Blavatnik School of Government. My research interests lie in the areas of international political economy, international organizations with a particular focus on the International Monetary Fund, computational simulation and multi-method research in social sciences, as well as investment arbitration. My current research attempts to open the black box of the negotiations for IMF programs, which sheds light on the processes leading to variation in IMF conditionality.

I hold a Ph.D. degree in International Relations/Political Science from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, a master’s degree in International Relations from Middle East Technical University and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Bilkent University.
