I am an historian and philosopher of economics, interested in the applications of evolutionary theory in the history of economic analysis. I also do research in the social histories of Turkish political and economic theories in the modern era (from the 1930s to the present). I publish both in Turkish and in English. My current areas of study are research ethics, scientific misconduct, questionable research practices, and issues related to copyright infringement at universities.

I earned a PhD degree in Economics and Philosophy from the Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics, Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2009. During 2011-2012 academic year, I was a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge, working on a post-doctoral research project, entitled “Philosophizing Economics.” Currently, I am an associate professor at Ankara University. Since February 2012, I have been a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Philosophical Economics.

I am an occasional blogger at You can also follow my tweets on research ethics in economics at
