I am a Senior Researcher at TINT (Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence in the Philosophy of Social Sciences, University of Helsinki, Finland), and an Associate Professor (currently on leave) at Bahcesehir University (Istanbul, Turkey). I am one of the Associate Editors of the Journal of Economic Methodology, and a member of the Editorial Board of the History of Economic Ideas.

I have a PhD in Economics & Philosophy from the Erasmus University Rotterdam (The Netherlands). After earning my BSc. and M.A. degrees in economics at Ankara University (Turkey), I completed the Research Masters Program (MPhil) in Economics and Philosophy at  the Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE). My PhD thesis supervisors were Jack Vromen and Maarten Janssen. I defended my thesis against a committee that included Mark Blaug, Uskali Mäki, and Robert Sugden as its members.

Before coming to Helsinki, I held positions at Ankara University, Boğaziçi University, Yıldız Technical University, and Galatasaray University. Apart from my academic writing, I also write for a wider audience. My opinion pieces were published by Wall Street Journal Turkey, Business HT and TEPAV Blog. Occasionally I write policy notes for TEPAV (Economic Policy Research Foundation Turkey).
