Assistant Professor of Environmental Planning


I am an assistant professor of environmental planning at the Department of Spatial Planning and Environment, Faculty of Spatial Sciences. 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.

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 and my B.Sc. in environmental engineering from Middle East Technical University. My main research interests are situated at the intersection of climate justice and energy democracy with empirical attention to environmental conflicts, social movements and migration mainly in Turkey.

My academic work appeared in journals such as Frontiers in Energy ResearchApplied EnergyEnergy Research and Social ScienceTurkish StudiesSustainability ScienceWIREs Climate ChangeGlobal Environmental ChangeEcological EconomicsCapitalism Nature Socialism, Nature Climate Change, New Perspectives on Turkey, and Journal of Political Ecology. Most recently, I co-edited the volume Transforming Socio-Natures in Turkey: Landscapes, State and Environmental Movements (Routledge Environmental Humanities Series, 2019).
