Liberal, secular, free-thinker. Have lived and worked for the European Commission (The Publications Office of the European Union) in Luxembourg, United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Turkey and Allianz SE in Germany. Currently, I work for an environmental consultancy in London as a Climate Change Consultant.
My academic background is in civil engineering, carbon-accounting, environmental economics and policy, sustainable development, international development studies, and more recently Green House Gas (GHG) Accounting, Science-based Target Setting (SBT) and corporate sustainability strategy. Social equality, human rights, environmental impact assessment, and sustainable development are at the core of my interests. Respecting differences and continuous learning from every experience is my attitude towards life.
My academic research is in the area of international development. The focus of my dissertation was on the health and education sectors in Sub-Saharan Africa. I performed comparative analysis of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and made policy recommendations for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Through my past experiences, I am fully accustomed to the work ethics and environment of the corporate as well as international development organisations. My experiences include sectors as diverse as development, charity, corporate, financial, transport, professional services and legal sectors. Communications, project management, resource management, database management, web management, research and analytics, content writing and editing, and policy analysis are areas of expertise.
I do photography as a hobby.
