I'm the founder of The Posthuman Lab and a founding co-editor of the Journal of Posthumanism. Currently, I teach humanities and social science courses at Yorkville University. In addition, I'm a researcher at the University of Toronto, where I work on a project at the intersection of technology, politics (political activism), and posthumanism. I'm also an affiliated researcher at the Digital Life Institute's AI Implications Cluster hosted by Ontario Tech University, Brock University's Posthumanism Research Institute, and The Center for Critical Research on Religion.  Previously, I worked as an assistant professor of political science in Istanbul, Turkey, as well as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Florida’s Department of Religion.

I focus on posthuman politics, religion, and technology, with a particular emphasis on ecological transformation.

When I don't read and write; swimming, cycling,  and watching movies and series make me feel good.
