Originally from Canada, I’ve lived in Saudi Arabia and Spain. i came to London in 2013 to do a Masters in Turkish Studies, and stayed to complete a PhD on Turkish historiography. I’ve traveled widely, have learned to speak, read and write eleven languages with varying fluency, and am a decent swimmer. Despite the serious nature of my job and my studies, I’ve always had a silly side and love of plush animals, cute figurines and making things with my hands.
