About me

I joined UWE in 2019. After the completion of my PhD at the University of Warwick in 2012, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow, instructor, visiting professor and academic coordinator in a number of universities and educational initiatives in Turkey and Hungary.
My doctoral research investigated the restructuring of state and (de)politicisation of economic policymaking in post-2001 Turkey from a critical political economy perspective. As a postdoctoral researcher, I have had the opportunity to work on a number of individual and collaborative research projects in the following areas: emerging multinational corporations and their impact, transformation of politics and policymaking in the periphery of Europe with reference to Hungary and Turkey and dynamics of anti-politics and austerity from a scalar and spatial perspective. I am interested in learning more about critical political economypolitics of (de)politicisation in governance and social relationstheories of stateMarx's social theory and Marxism(s)politics in Turkey and Europe, academic labour and freedom. My research has previously appeared in the British Journal of Politics and International RelationsNew Political Economy, Palgrave Macmillan-Springer publications, and Palgrave International Political Economy book series. Full texts of most of these publications could be accessed here
I previously taught courses and led seminars in world politics, public policy, development, crisis and contestation in Europe and politics in Turkey at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. I have had the opportunity to work with learners from diverse backgrounds. I am interested in critical pedagogies, issues of marketisation, exclusion/inclusion in higher education and their impact on teaching/learning practices. During the 2019-20 academic year I will be contributing to teaching in the following undergraduate and postgraduate modules: Global Political EconomyTheories of International RelationsThe Rise of the Global EconomyThe World Trade Organisation and the Global Trading System.
