BA, MPhil (Cantab)

DPhil Candidate

I am a social psychologist and behavioral researcher focused on designing and delivering interventions that promote sustainable and healthy diets. My DPhil studies explore barriers and enablers to reducing meat consumption, with an emphasis on the role of social norms in individuals’ likelihood to change their behavior. I am part of the Livestock, Environment, and People (LEAP) team.


I am originally from Turkey, and a graduate of the Dual BA Program between Columbia University in New York, USA and Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po) in France. I hold two Bachelor of Arts degrees, one in Psychology and Sociology and the other in Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies. Following my undergraduate degrees, I completed my MPhil in Social and Developmental Psychology at the University of Cambridge, and worked as a research assistant at the Cambridge Social Decision Making Lab before moving to Oxford and joining the department.
