About Me

I am a lecturer in the International Studies program at University of California Irvine. My field of research is public diplomacy and the role of communication in relations between nations. I specialize in Turkey’s public diplomacy and political communication. My research focuses on humanitarian and development aid as a nation branding practice and promotion. My fieldwork in Ecuador, Mexico and Kenya has inspired me to develop my own project in which I partner with local NGOs to provide for school girls in Nairobi, Kenya and Mardin, Turkey.
