Work history:

I have taught undergraduate level courses in the department of Psychology at Bilkent University from 2019-2021. I have also spent considering time working in mental health support and accessibility projects targetting refugee populations in Turkey and the UK, as well as in the development of perinatal depression interventions targetting mother-child dyads among refugee populations in Turkey.

In my free time, I love to travel (you might even find some travel articles I've written scattered around the internet) and am a dedicated at-home baker. I also love horseriding, and spending time with my pets at home.
