About me

I am an associate professor of Real Estate and Finance and the chair of the Finance Department at the John Molson School of Business, Concordia University.

I am working as an associate professor of Real Estate and Finance at the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University in Canada. Before joining John Molson, I have worked at Ozyegin University as an assistant professor. I have received my PhD degree in Finance specializing in Real Estate from Maastricht University. I also hold a second PhD degree in Economics from Middle East Technical University.

I work on real estate finance, more specifically Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), commercial real estate, commercial mortgages, green buildings, and climate finance. My research projects in these fields have been published in leading academic journals including Review of Finance, Real Estate Economics, Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics, Journal of Banking and Finance, Journal of Economic Geography, and Journal of International Money and Finance.

My research has been recognized and funded by leading academic and private institutions. My research has also been awarded for grants and awards from institutions such as Real Estate Research Institute (RERI), European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA), National Pension Hub (NPH), and Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

I presented my academic works at leading universities such as MIT, Yale University, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and Cornell University.
