Oyku Senlen is a Researcher for E3G's Fossil Fuel Transition Team, conducting research and analysis on the global energy transition with a particular focus on coal.
Her work includes carrying out data-driven research on the global coal landscape, fossil fuel transition, and transition pathways. She creates interactive knowledge materials by analysing climate and energy-related data and combining these with indicators from relevant domains such as finance, trade, and macroeconomics. She also utilises climate models and scenario outputs in her areas of research.
Before joining E3G, Oyku worked as an expert on climate policy and low-carbon transition at the Turkish Industry and Business Association (TUSIAD). Through her work, she gained experience in Turkey’s climate policy landscape, political and economic impacts of climate change, and international climate policy. She attended several UNFCCC Conference of Parties as a member of the delegation. Oyku also worked for several clean energy-oriented NGOs and volunteered in environmental organisations, such as CAN International and WWF-Turkey.
Oyku holds an MSc in Climate Change, Development and Policy from the University of Sussex and Institute of Development Studies, where she attended as a Chevening Scholar. She received her BSc in Applied Physics from Hacettepe University in Turkey.
In her spare time, Oyku enjoys cycling, hiking, and attending live gigs.
