I came to America when I was 17 years old. After finishing bachelor and finance degrees, I left for Istanbul, Turkey to start my career in PricewaterhouseCoopers. Later, I moved to Moscow, Russia to work in a private company as financial analyst. Since academia has always been my passion, I decided to pursue Ph.D. in Accounting and join the university community.
