I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow within Global Politics and Security Programme at Utrikespolitiska Institutet. My work lies at the intersection of global migration governance and public policy, focusing on the political consequences of forced migration. I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Prior to pursuing my PhD, I was working as a Research Assistant at the Migration Research Centre at Koç University (MiReKoç). I received my MA in International Affairs from the George Washington University, Washington, DC, and my BA in Political Science and International Relations from Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey.
