Summary

I have master's degrees (M.A.) in Economics from both Bilkent University and the University of New Hampshire. I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree (PhD.) in Business and Economics at Lehigh University, Pennsylvania. I am working on research oriented projects that require economic modeling and statistical analysis. I also worked in a non-academic job at Deloitte, one of the big-four auditors, as an intern in the Tax Department. I complemented this internship with another experience in one of the biggest public banks in Turkey, Halkbank. I personally have an interest in entrepreneurship as well.
My research interests are defined as follows: Health Economics, Applied Econometrics, Microeconometrics and Public Finance. The skills that I acquire include, but is not limited to, extensive data manipulation for large samples along with rigorous data analysis, forecasting, and statistical inference. Most of the data analysis in my research projects is done by using statistical software packages such as Stata and SAS. I have experience in using Eviews, R, and certain toolboxes in Matlab as well. I have a strong background in conducting quantitative research and gathering polished reports. I consider myself as an approachable member with an active role in group projects.
