Academic Profile

I am a philosopher of economics interested in the economics of scientific knowledge, the political economy of intellectual property, and research ethics in economics. My current areas of study are scientific misconduct and questionable research practices in economics and issues related to intellectual property infringement at universities. I also do research in the social histories of Turkish political and economic theories in the modern era (from the 1930s to the present). I publish both in Turkish and in English.
