I am a Phd student studying Middle Eastern History at UC San Diego.

I’m particularly interested in Turkey, where I used to live. But, more generally, I’m interested in the ways individual people understand and react to economic and political changes–especially  those  moments after wars and economic crises when people  have the vision necessary to imagine a better world, and the confidence necessary to attempt to bring such dreams about.
