I completed my undergraduate study in mathematics and received my master’s degree in economics at Bogazici University in Turkey. I earned my Ph.D. degree in economics at the University of Connecticut in 2009, where my dissertation was on matching markets with correlated preferences.
Right after my graduation, I joined the Eastern Connecticut State University as a visiting instructor of economics. Then, I worked at Quinnipiac University from August 2010 to May 2013. In September 2013, I started my position as an assistant professor of economics at Yasar University in Turkey. Before moving to Boston, I was a visiting assistant professor at the University of Hartford from January 2020 to May 2022.
My primary research area is Sports Economics and my secondary research interest is Labor/Gender Economics. My recent research is in sports economics, particularly empirical work, including the analysis of participation by gender in sports. I am also an associate editor for Humanities & Social Sciences Communications. You can find more information about me on this website.
