Welcome!

Cilizoglu_Website_PhotoI am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of  Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, studying International Relations and Political Methodology. Starting August 2018, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at St. Olaf College.

My research examines the processes connecting foreign policy to international economics, with a particular emphasis on economic sanctions. I specifically explore the onset, consequences, enforcement, effectiveness and removal of sanctions. In my work, I combine formal modeling with quantitative analysis.
