I am currently Assistant Professor of Economics at Saint Mary’s University. I completed my undergraduate studies at Marmara University in Turkey (BA in Economics, 2007), and graduate studies (MA in Economics, 2008; PhD in Economics, 2013) at the University of Guelph.

My research interests are in the fields of Applied Econometrics, Economics of Education and Labor Economics. In particular, my work concentrates on program and policy evaluation, school and teacher effectiveness assessment. I have also investigated the determinants of access and persistence in post-secondary education, intergenerational transmission of education, and the university quality premium on wages.
