I am a social environmental scientist & consultant who recently completed MA degree in Environment & Development at the Geography Department of King's College London where I am awarded with Jean Monnet Scholarship to pursue my studies. I have been professionally working at environment, energy and development nexus since 2007. Previously, I worked for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as the Prosperity Fund Turkey Programme Fund Coordinator for 3.5 years and over-sighted the FCO’s portfolio of climate, energy, and open economy projects in Turkey. I currently serve as a consultant & projects coordinator at a private carbon & climate services company (GTE Carbon) based in Ankara. I also undertake independent research & frequently contribute to Turkish media outlets on issues regarding my area of interests. I have delivered numerous consultancy works on climate change science and policy.
