I am a PhD student investigating ongoing gentrification and regeneration projects and their impacts on uses of public spaces in Istanbul. My thesis title is 'Loss of Public Space and Gentrification in Istanbul'. My research focuses on how gentrification is different in the context of Turkey by observing three neighbourhoods in Istanbul.
I hold an MA in Sociology with the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex. My MA research explored Discourse that created Masculinity in the Media.
I have been teaching Identity&Society module's seminars since January 2017.
