Personal profile


I joined the School of EFA on 3rd January as Senior Lecturer in Economics. I completed my BSc in Management Engineering at Istanbul Technical University (1996) and my MA in Economics at Bogazici University (1999). I obtained my PhD in Economics from the University of Nottingham in 2004. I am an applied economist with expertise in data analysis and econometric modelling. My research is mainly in three areas: labour and education economics with a focus on inequalities; motives, investment decisions, location choice and host economy effects of foreign direct investment; and the role of public support programmes in firm innovation. I have more than 10 years of experience in teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels; course leadership; PhD supervision; external research funding applications; consultancy and project work; and mentoring. Prior to Coventry University, I held positions at Istanbul Technical University, Staffordshire University and the University of Sussex.  I am a founder and advisory board member of the ITU Women’s Studies Centre in Science, Engineering and Technology. I have also been invited to various universities for teaching and research, including Bahcesehir University, Dogus University, European University of Lefke, University American College, University of Nottingham, and the University of Sussex.
