Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field. If you cannot find the expert you are looking for in this list, try searching via a related field or faculty; you may find him or her there.

My research focuses on non-anthropocentric conceptualizations of animality and general nonhumanity in Italian modernist literature. I build on Herman’s (2011) remodelling of Modernism through the lens of Enactivism, but instead of looking at themes and contents, I prefer to study the texts through a Neo-Formalist perspective (Levine 2015), meaning that the core of my studies points at the formal narrative innovations produced by Italian Modernism. The aim is to identify the forms used to represent nonhumanity and its relationship with humanity, so to offer new tools to represent them in today’s literature. Accordingly, I employ theories drawn from Posthumanism, Ecocriticism, Animal Studies and New Materialism, so to combine an innovative take on forms and an undertheorized topic such as nonhumanity in Italian literature.
The authors I currently have under examination are Carlo Emilio Gadda and Luigi Pirandello.

Before moving to Groningen, I was a postdoctoral researcher at KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) Environmental Humanities Laboratory, Division of History of Science, Technology and Environment in Stockholm between 2016 and 2020. Previous to that, I held 2014/2015 Mercator-IPC Fellowship on climate change at Istanbul Policy Center, Sabancı University. I received my master's and Ph.D. degrees in environmental studies from the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (2014) and my B.Sc. in environmental engineering from Middle East Technical University (2008).
My academic work appeared in edited volumes and journals such as Dialogues in Human Geography, Environmental Science & Policy, Environment and Planning E: Nature and Space, Frontiers in Energy Research, Applied Energy, Energy Research and Social Science, Turkish Studies, Sustainability Science, WIREs Climate Change, Global Environmental Change, Ecological Economics, Capitalism Nature Socialism, Nature Climate Change, New Perspectives on Turkey, and Journal of Political Ecology. Previously, I co-edited the volume Transforming Socio-Natures in Turkey: Landscapes, State and Environmental Movements (together with Onur Inal, Routledge Environmental Humanities Series, 2019).
Currently, I am co-editing a book titled "Urban Movements and Climate Change: Loss, Damage and Radical Adaptation" (together with Marco Armiero and Salvatore Paolo de Rosa, forthcoming from Amsterdam University Press). I also co-edited a recent special issue of Social Text (Duke University Press) titled "Urban Climate Insurgency".
I serve as an editorial board member of Dialogues in Human Geography (SAGE), as an editor for Sustainability Science (Springer) and as an associate editor for open-access journal, Climate Action (Nature Springer).
