Information about Nilay

I am a person constantly striving to do my best in whatever I do. I am at ease with both conceptual and practical issues.
I am passionate about broadening my knowledge of "language"and very interested in foreign languages; especially German and English.
I am an academic/researcher. I went to a German school in Turkey, studied European Studies (MA European Studies) in Germany (2006-2009).
I earned a PhD degree in Politics at the University of Otago in NZ, gave Pols lectures at this university in the years 2012, 2014 and 2015. I also presented several Pols papers at prestigious international conferences in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Austria and Turkey. I published a book (available world-wide)and several articles.
I have teaching experiences in NZ and Germany.
I am an author on a popular poetry and short-stories web-site site since the year 2005; I published several poems, aphorisms and short-stories in both German and English.
I am an individual who is always keen to contribute to the organisation/institution where I work and take responsibility for its success. I am hard working and disciplined and I maintain excellent social relationships with the people I meet through my work.
