Murat Abus

Ph.D. Student, Political Science

Syracuse University


Hello! I am a first-gen Ph.D. student originally from Turkey. I worked in various industries as well as spent considerable time on international assignments (Iraq, Libya, Djibouti, the Philippines) before returning to academia. I am a student of American Politics and Comparative Politics. I enjoy teaching and collaborating. I try to be active in the conference circuit. In addition to Turkish, I speak Russian.

I am an avid reader. Archaeology, travelling, and cars are my primary hobbies. I am fascinated by the transition from paleolithic to neolithic era, civilizations of the Old World, and late-model classic cars. I grew up in Erzurum in Eastern Turkey with an altitude of 1,900mt (6,233ft) above sea level.
