About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at Indiana University at Bloomington working with Prof. Dr. Filippo Menczer and Prof. Dr. Alessandro Flammini at Observatory on Social Media (OSOME). I also collaborate with Prof. Dr. Karl Aberer and Dr. Remi Lebret from EPFL and Prof. Dr. Rebekah Overdorf and Prof. Dr. Mathias Humbert from UNIL, Switzerland.

My research focuses on computational approaches to understand and counter social media manipulation. I’m also interested in understanding and describing humans’ interactions with each other on social media platforms and with the platforms themselves. I use a combination of security, data science and computational social science methods to conduct my research.

I received my Ph.D. from EPFL, under supervision of Prof. Dr. Karl Aberer in 2022, and my B.S. from Bilkent University in 2017.

My DMs are always open!
