Harvard Academy
Harvard University


I earned my Ph.D. from Georgetown University in 2015. My current book project, which is based on dissertation research, examines the environmental history of late Ottoman and early Republican Cilicia. Alongside my academic research, I also produce and frequently host Ottoman History Podcast, a weekly internet radio program in English and Turkish dealing with new topics in the study of the Ottoman Empire and the modern Middle East.
