I am an academic economist at the University of York. I hold a BSc in Economics from METU, Ankara Turkey and MSc in Economics from the University of Warwick. I completed my PhD at York and have taught at various institutions, including University of Durham, METU, and University of York where I currently hold a Chair in Economics.
My main research interests are macroeconomics, political economy and international finance. More specifically my research has focussed on currency and financial crises, monetary policy, politics and policy making and more recently macroprudential policy and fiscal austerity.
