I am Assistant Professor of Political Science in the School of Social Sciences at Singapore Management University. I have previously held positions at Koç University, Istanbul, and National University of Singapore. I received my PhD in Government from Cornell University.

My research is located at the intersection of the history of Western political thought, classical and critical political economy, history of capitalism, and imperial studies. I am currently completing a book manuscript that is under contract with Oxford University Press. Entitled "Colonial Capitalism and the Dilemmas of Liberalism," the book investigates the impact of colonial economic relations on the formation of liberal political thought in early-modern Britain. 

My research has been published in The Journal of Politics, The Review of Politics, Polity, New Political Economy,  and Rural Sociology.
