Sohbet Karbuz

Born in 1965, I am an engineer and an economist by education (BSc, MSc, PhD, PostDoc), a number cruncher by experience, an energy analyst by profession, and a military energy analyst by passion. Currently I am working as director of hydrocarbons at an energy industry association in France. Before joining that association I was with the International Energy Agency in Paris. Previously, I worked as research associate and manager at several institutions in Austria, Turkey and Germany. I felt obliged to write this becuase many people ask my bakground. And no, I do not have any connection to the DOD.
