About Me

    I studied statistics and economics at the Middle East Technical University, and got my Ph.D. from The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. As a teacher, I have taught financial management, statistics, econometrics, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and principles of economics. My research includes work on exchange rates, herding behavior among investors, financial markets, financial economics and econometrics. My articles have appeared in academic peer-reviewed journals, such as Applied Economics Letters, Journal of Applied Economics, Economic Modelling, and International Business & Economics Research Journal.  My research papers are cited many times by other researchers. I have been collaborating with graduate students and have presented my findings in academic conferences. My research papers in exchange rates and stock market relationship, the herding behavior among investors, and macroeconomic news effect on stock returns are used in my graduate economics courses as an applied example for the subjects.
