Research Interests

Urban Sociology, Social Exclusion, Citizenship Studies, Urban Citizenship, Disability Studies
My primary research interests are Sociology of Health and Illness and Disability Studies. More recently I have conducted research on the social experience of physical rehabilitation in the UK and in Turkey. I have spent the 2016-2017 academic year as a Marie Curie Individual Fellow at the University of East Anglia. My earlier research interest was Urban Sociology, more specifically urban regeneration, urban governance and urban citizenship. I conducted research on the political economy of Istanbul. Some of my publications include an article on discourses surrounding the concept of “walking” in in-patient rehabilitation in Turkey, in Disability & Society (2016), and another one on the use of medical technology in rehabilitation in the Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research (2016). My work on the political economy of Istanbul was published in the International Journal of Urban and Regional Studies (2008, 2013).
