I am a philosopher. I defended my dissertation at Cornell University in 2016 May, and I will be an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Bilkent University starting in the 2016 Fall semester. Before starting graduate school, I obtained a JD in law from the Eötvös Lóránd University of Sciences, Budapest.
I specialize in metaphysics and mind, but I also have substantial research interests in epistemology. I think a lot about meta-metaphysics, personal identity and the self, material objects, the epistemology of ontology, explanation, dependence, and the conceptual tools we need to do metaphysics and philosophy in general.
As a teacher, I am an enthusiastic generalist, with teaching interests spanning from the philosophy of language to early modern philosophy to applied ethics. I particularly enjoyed teaching Death, Dying, and Killing in the 2014-2015 academic year, a self-designed course that covered various metaphysical, prudential and ethical issues concerning death.
Outside philosophy I am interested in history and enjoy traveling to new places.
