I am the 50th Anniversary Lecturer in Behavioural Sciences at Lancaster University Management School. I read International Relations, Political Science, and International Political Economy in Turkey and England, before completing my PhD in Economic Sociology at the University of Edinburgh. I have previously worked at the University of Edinburgh, Napier University, Gothenburg University, and King's College London.
I have long been interested in the nexus between individual and institutional level determinants of financial judgements and decision-making. My research has focussed on modern Turkish Political Economy, credit rating agencies and state sovereignty, business media, and investors and financial intermediaries in the Istanbul Stock Exchange.
I am currently exploring how savings and investment behaviours of immigrants are shaped by individual and institutional determinants in their host and home countries, and what these imply for scholarly and policy debates on the socio-economic integration of immigrants in Europe.
