I am a PhD candidate in the Cultural Anthropology program at Rutgers University and a fellow in two different centers focusing on the "commons" and "futures". My dissertation is on the unconventional spaces and methods of solidarity and social movement at the times of capitalist, authoritarian, and colonial destructions. I hold an MA in Comparative Studies in History and Society at Koc University in Istanbul. My MA thesis is on feminist case lawyers' diverse activisms in the court rooms.
