Bio

Hello, my name is Uras. 


I am a PhD candidate at the University of California Irvine's Department of Political Science and an aspiring data scientist. I focus on IR and quantitative methods, and I work on the interaction between trade, finance, and conflict. 

I am particularly interested in multilevel modeling and network analysis.

Before joining UCI's program, I received an MSc from Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commericales du Nord (EDHEC) in Lille, France, in Global Business with an academic concentration on International Finance. I hold a joint BSc from State University of New York at Binghamton, and Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey, in International Affairs. Between my academic engagements, I worked in the finance and energy sectors.
