About me

I received my undergraduate and master's degrees from Bogazici University and Koc University (Istanbul, Turkey), and my Ph.D. degree in Industrial/Organisational Psychology from DePaul University (Chicago - IL, USA). Prior to joining UWE, I worked as an assistant professor at MEF University (Istanbul, Turkey) for two years, with a joint appointment in the psychology and business administration departments. 

My research focuses on two key areas: Diversity and interpersonal relationships in organisations as determinants of the task and contextual performance in the work context. Within the broad scope of diversity, I am interested in gender and culture as the critical bases, and with regard to the relationships in organisations, I'm particularly interested in abusive supervision and relational energy among coworkers. 

Although my priority is research, I am a proponent of the scientist-practitioner model of occupational psychology. In my experience as a practitioner, I worked for human resources departments of multinational companies such as Accenture Consulting and I engaged in consulting projects in the USA and Turkey. I look for opportunities for collaboration with practitioners since I believe consulting and delivering training programs to professionals provide valuable inspiration for my research via the interaction with people working at different organisations.
