PhD candidate at Leeds Beckett University. Visiting lecturer in the School of Architecture + Cities, University of Westminster.

My research speciality lies in the anthropology of tourism. I am currently researching tourist spaces (resorts) and how they are used by both domestic and international visitors, the impacts of tourism on societies and cultures, and relationships between tourists and hosts. My PhD research explores Turkish tourist resorts as places of escapism and refuge.
