I received my PhD from SUNY Binghamton, Department of Sociology in 2009. Until 2016 I was an assistant professor of sociology at Marmara University in Istanbul, Turkey. Since the beginning of January 2017, I have been teaching at Emily Carr University of Arts + Design, Faculty of Culture and Community. My research focuses on history of medicine, eugenics, and diseases of the interwar period. I also work on STS and contemporary social and political theory, with a particular focus on the making of commons.
