Dissertation Title
2017-2019 Postdoctoral Fellow in Islamic Studies
I have been fortunate to spend the last two years as Abbasi Program’s post-doctoral fellow during my transition back to the U.S. academia. Apart from Stanford’s immense resources, enriching events and amazing colleagues to provide the exceptional setting for my research and professional development, the program has provided me with the precious support I needed after my departure from Turkey. I am grateful for the chance to teach my favorite course directly on my research, Contemporary Muslim Political Thought and the invaluable time I could spend to immerse myself further in my research.
