I am currently an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Affiliated Faculty of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Emory University in Atlanta. My research and teaching broadly focus on social and political theory with an emphasis on feminist/anti-racist/decolonial thought. 

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 supernatural or fantasy science fiction in novel or short story form. 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.
