My research interest is in Macroeconomics and Labour Economics. I am also interested in international economics in general. I am currently working on the partial insurance role of time allocation in incomplete markets. In particular, I investigate the effect of price search on the life-cycle profile of consumption inequality and the role of home production on optimal unemployment insurance policies.

I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Rochester, with a dissertation entitled, ‘On the Role of Time Allocation in Incomplete Markets’. My advisor is Professor Mark Aguiar. I received my B.A. in Economics from Bilkent University.
