I joined the Koç University faculty in 2015 after completing a PhD in sociology at Johns Hopkins University. My scholarly interests include political economy, historical sociology, rural development, social movements, and welfare politics, with a focus on China, India, and Turkey. I teach courses on social theory, historical sociology, political sociology, and Asian political economy. I was a Fox International Fellow at the MacMillan Center at Yale University in 2006-07 and a visiting researcher at the Center for Rural China Governance at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2012, the Center for Development Studies in Trivandrum, Kerala in 2013, and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University in Summer 2016.
