Bonjour/Hi!

My name is Dilek. I am a Turkish-Canadian montréalaise, who was born in Ankara, Turkey. I am a Doctoral Researcher and job market candidate in Economics at Concordia University. My dissertation advisor is Prof. Szilvia PAPAI. My research combines ideas from algorithm design, social choice theory, and refugee studies. I design algorithms with deep social impact.

I completed my BA in Mathematics and Economics at the University of Virginia. I worked at Ameriprise Financial, Inc. in Charlottesville, Virginia as a financial planning associate for two and a half years. I moved to Montreal, QC, Canada in 2011 for my MA in Economics at McGill University.
