He obtained his PhD degree in Environmental/Water Politics from Dundee Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science (under the auspices of UNESCO), the University of Dundee. His PhD explored environmental justice related issues embedded in Turkey’s small-scale hydroelectricity power plant development process.
