I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Bath. My research focuses on the psychological factors driving the spread of visual online misinformation, and how it affects public opinion towards minority groups. I use data science tools in my research, especially social network analysis with R, along with qualitative methods such as interviewing and content analysis. 

Before starting the PhD, I lived and worked in Turkey, China, Qatar, South Korea, the US, and the UK. I also travelled extensively across the Middle East – including Turkey, Morocco, Jordan, Qatar and the UAE – as well as in Southeast Asia and Europe.
