Short Biography

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Lehigh University and M.A. in Economics from the University of New Hampshire, as well as M.A. and B.A. in Economics from Bilkent University.

My research interests are in the fields of Health Economics, Labor Economics, Public Finance, and Applied Econometrics. My recent work explores the effect of the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion on labor market outcomes.

I believe in nurturing active learning strategies that transform students into creative and critical thinkers while igniting their intellect and imagination. I strive to develop future leaders who can effectively communicate creative and innovative solutions in complex environments.

I have taught a variety of courses at Lehigh University, including Principles of Economics, Applied Microeconomic Analysis, and Statistical Methods.
