I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mathematics Department at Tulane University working with Rafał Komendarczyk. Before coming to Tulane I received a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Rochester in 2013, under the supervision of Professor Frederick R. Cohen, and a B.S. in Mathematics in 2008 from METU.
I am currently the organizer of the Geometry & Topology seminar.
Here is a more detailed CV.


My research interests lie in the field of algebraic topology. My current work is focused on spaces of representations of discrete groups in Lie groups and their homotopy theoretic properties. In addition I am working on polyhedral products, a generalized version of moment-angle complexes, and their applications to problems in other fields of mathematics; and filtrations of classifying spaces.
