Personal profile


In February 2013, I began my PhD journey at Bangor Business School after a period in the industry, successfully defending my thesis in August 2017. Following this academic milestone, I joined NBS as a Lecturer in Finance in January 2018 and was promoted to Associate Professor in Finance by August 2022.

My academic background includes a BSc in Business Administration from Hacettepe University in Turkey and an MSc in Economics and Finance from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in the US.

Researching across banking, corporate governance, corporate finance, and sustainable finance, my recent projects delve into the impact of information advantage held by bank senior managers and CEOs on performance and risk-taking. Additionally, I investigate the CEO power variables influencing the likelihood of committing and detecting bank fraud, while also exploring the corporate governance structure of environmentally violating companies and scrutinizing their relationships with stakeholders.
