About me

I am an economist with more than 15 years of experience working on energy economics and policy. I hold a Habilitation to supervise research (HDR) in Economics from the University of Paris Nanterre, a Ph.D. in Economics from University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, an M.A. in Economic Analysis and Modeling from University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and École Centrale Paris, and a B.A. in Economics from Galatasaray University.

Since December 2017, I have been a research fellow at KAPSARC, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I am also a research fellow at Economic Research Forum (ERF).

My research focuses mainly on developing economic frameworks to provide insights into energy policymaking in oil-producing countries. My work has been published in general-interest journals (e.g., Applied Economics, Journal of Comparative Economics, Macroeconomic Dynamics), as well as top-tier field journals (e.g., Energy Economics, Energy Journal, Energy Policy).

Besides research activities, I serve as an advisor to Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Energy and support decision-making in the energy sector. Additionally, I acted as a T20 task force advisor during the Saudi G20 Presidency in 2020.

Before joining KAPSARC, I worked as an associate professor of economics at the University of Paris Nanterre and taught courses such as econometrics, energy economics, and environmental economics. During the same period, I was a researcher at EconomiX-CNRS and worked on projects funded by organizations such as the European Renewable Energy Council and the French Energy Council. Prior to that, I was a researcher at Galatasaray University Economic Research Center (GIAM).
