I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Social Psychology at the University of Zürich, supported by the Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship. My previous professional roles include serving as a Senior Knowledge Management & Research Officer at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and holding a Senior Officer position at Save the Children International. Before that, I was a research assistant at several universities such as Harvard Business School, University College London, KU Leuven, and was teaching assistant and lab manager at Koç University.  

In my current research, I examine both the theoretical and applied aspects of social psychology, with a particular emphasis on global public interest and the humanitarian realm. I employ a multi-method approach, integrating large-scale surveys, behavioral experiments, and the automated analysis of digital data.

Research Interests
