Ph.D. in Comparative Literature
She is a Ph.D. candidate in Comparative Literature at The University of Texas at Austin. She has recently defended her dissertation entitled "Literary Neo-Ottomanism: The Emergence of a Cosmopolitan Turkey in World Literature" which focuses on the refractions of this Ottoman past for modern Turkish Literature and locates the origin of the new cosmopolitan phenomenon of literary neo-Ottomanism and assesses why that particular project is so appropriate to our globalized and cosmopolitan present moment.
Her work in digital humanities explores interdisciplinary collaborations with DH and other disciplines of humanities, particularly comparative and world literature as well as digital pedagogy. She co-organized a THATCamp focusing on digital pedagogy in January 2016 in Austin, TX.
