I am a Research Associate and an External Lecturer in Urban Planning at the University of Manchester, UK, and got my PhD from the same department in 2017. My research interests include critical urban theory, political economy, infrastructure financing and funding, and public policy making. Some of my recent works are listed here. Previously, I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and as a Research Assistant at the University of Manchester for the following modules and projects.
In my dissertation, I explored cultural political economy of infrastructure investments with special reference to governance practices, financing and funding models, urban restructuring and public policy making. To that end, I investigated the large-scale infrastructure investments in Istanbul and the policies associated with it. Should you wish to contact me you can reach out to me at my email address.
