I am a lecturer in law and teach in several areas including digital technologies, law and economy, data protection law, information technology law, copyright and Artificial Intelligence (AI). I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).

I graduated from Ankara University School of Law in Turkey. I hold MS and LLM degrees respectively from Middle East Technical University (Turkey) and the University of Essex (UK). I have my first PhD degree from Selcuk University (Turkey) in the field of private law with a focus on contract, competition and telecommunications laws. I completed my second PhD at Anglia Ruskin University (UK) based on multidisciplinary research of regulatory governance of ICT interoperability with multiple case studies focused on cloud computing and the Internet of Things. Before this, I had professional experience as a regulatory expert in the Turkish regulatory body for electronic communications for a period of over ten years.  

My research includes investigation of the interfaces between competition, IP and IT laws from the beginning, and has been intensified on trust and ethics with a focus on AI in recent times. I have been researching AI and its usage on a widening scale along with the emerging challenges concerning transparency, responsibility and accountability in different sectors.
