I am a feminist and antiracist educator, writer, and political philosopher. My research and teaching focus on Enlightenment thought (especially Kant) as well as on contemporary social and political theory. I work as an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Affiliated Faculty of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Emory University and I reside in Atlanta, GA.

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 memoirs, speculative/science fiction and supernatural fantasy books. I also like smart TV shows, cat memes, and yoga. I am a proud guardian of two cats and a dog.
