I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Glasgow. I work at the ERC Consolidator Grant project ‘Democracy under Threat: How Education can Save it’ (DEMED), together with the project leader Professor Anja Neundorf and the DEMED team. I am originally from Sakarya, Turkey.

My research agenda revolves around the issue of political identities and mass attitudes towards democracy and authoritarianism. My research on these issues has been published in leading political science journals, including Comparative Political Studies, Perspectives on Politics, and Government and Opposition. My research has received support from the American Political Science Association, the Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa, the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, and the Moynihan Institute at Syracuse University.
