PhD Student and research Assistant in Athens, GA
I am a visiting student researcher in the Center for the Study of Global Issues (GLOBIS) at the University of Georgia with the Fulbright grant, and I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of International Relations and Political Science at Koç University. I obtained my M.A. at Dokuz Eylül University in 2014 with the thesis titled “A Comparative Analysis of Civil-Military Relations in Turkey and Argentina During the 1970s and 1980s.” More recently, I focus on political behavior with an emphasis on the individual determinants of support for populism. My dissertation examines the relationship between collective nostalgia and populist attitudes. My research interests also include survey experiments, political communication, content analysis, and minorities in Turkey.
