Short Bio: I received my B.A in philosophy in 1986 from Bogazici University (formerly, Robert College) in Istanbul, and my doctoral degree from University of Maryland at College Park (UMCP) in 1993. After spending one and a half years at CSLI, Stanford, as a visiting scholar, I moved to the University of Chicago in October 1994 as an assistant professor. Between 2001 and 2007, I was an associate professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Florida. Since July 2007, I have been a professor in the Philosophy Department at UBC.
