I'm Assistant Professor of Urbanization and Environmental Problems in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at Izmir Katip Celebi University, Turkey. My research focus on democratization of science, transnational collaborations, political ecology of disasters, toxicity governance, and bioeconomies.
I completed my doctoral degree in Science and Technology Studies Program at York University, Canada (2017). My dissertation investigated the potentiation of algae as sustainable resource for bioenergy economies through a multi-sited ethnographic research conducted in the United States and Turkey. I was also a visiting researcher in the Anthropology Department at the MIT in 2013-2014, and a research fellow in the Sociology Department at Koç University under the TÜBİTAK Co-Funded Brain Circulation Scheme fellowship programme in 2016-2017. I am the founding member of IstanbuLab and Transnational STS Network, an associate editor for Engaging Science, Technology, and Society, and council member in the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) since September 2019.
