I earned my Ph.D. degree in Economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. During my doctorate degree, I was awarded with a pre-doctoral fellowship by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) for my work titled as “Labor Force Attachment Beyond Normal Retirement Age.”
I completed my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Economics (double major) with top ranking, and Master’s Degree in Economics with a fellowship awarded by TUBITAK, The Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey, at Koc University, Istanbul.
My research interests are in the areas of Labor Economics, Public Economics, Applied Microeconomics and Econometrics. My current research projects focus on labor supply decisions of elderly people, bankruptcy behavior of individuals, correction of generalized attrition bias in panel data sets having a short panel component, correction of selectivity bias in models of double selection and the effect of child mortality on fertility decisions in Indonesia.
