I'm a research associate at The Center for Critical Research on Religion. Previously, I worked as an Assistant Professor of Political Science and Public Administration at Istanbul Arel University and as a research scholar at the University of Florida’s Department of Religion.

I focus on the themes of the political ecology of religion, science, and security from a critical perspective.

When I don't read and write; traveling, Netflixing, or swimming make me feel good.
