Professional Bio

I am a computational sociologist enrolled in the Sociology and Social Data Analytics (STEM) PhD program, and I work with Daniel Dellaposta and David Baker among others.

I use agent-based modeling, epidemiological methods, spatial econometrics, network analysis, and similar techniques to understand collective behavior in various contexts (check my ongoing projects).

My MA thesis (under preparation for publication) on the diffusion of lynchings in India has received Huber-Form MA Thesis Award.

I am an alumnus of Istanbul Şehir University (RIP), where I studied Political Science, Sociology, and Psychology. I have also spent an exchange semester at the University of Bamberg, Germany. I have an MA in Political Science from the State University of New York at Binghamton (where I received a Dissertation Year Award and taught two original courses).

My collaborative work has appeared in Nature Scientific Data, Canadian Public Policy, Frontiers in Political Science, and Journal of Political Institutions and Political Economy. 

I use (big) data to tell stories in my spare time, check them out on my website.
