I’m a researcher and teacher specializing in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century British literature and theater, working as Assistant Professor in the Program of Cultures, Civilizations, and Ideas at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey. I received my PhD in English with a Gender Studies concentration at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2019.

My research interests include theater and performance studies, the novel, imperialism, adaptation and translation, gender and queer theory,  and Shakespeare and his afterlives. My teaching interests include feminist and inclusive pedagogy, writing in the disciplines, multimodal composition, and service learning.

In my free time I enjoy hiking in the mountains, attending the opera, cooking new recipes, traveling, and reading mystery novels.
