I am a feminist political philosopher currently residing in Atlanta, GA. My research and teaching broadly focus on Kant as well as on social and political theory with an emphasis on feminist/anti-racist/decolonial thought. I work as an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Affiliated Faculty of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Emory University. Here is my current CV.

I grew up in Istanbul, Turkey. I have a deep fondness for books and I read a lot outside of my teaching and research expertise; in addition to theory, I like reading fiction, especially speculative/science fiction and supernatural fantasy books. I also like smart TV shows, Harry Potter series (in a Foucauldian-death-of-the-author kind of way), cat memes, and yoga. I am a proud guardian of two cats and a dog.
