Assistant Professor, Faculty of Social Sciences
I was a BBC journalist before returning to academia to do a PhD on the Turkey-EU accession process.
I can comment on Turkish politics and the Turkey-EU relationship as well as wider issues to do with the role of the news media in liberal democracies - and the security implications of Brexit.
My teaching to date has focussed on Politics and International Relations theories, metatheories and methodologies - and how they interact. I am also interested in the pedagogy of research methods.
I have also taught international history of the 19th and 20th centuries and area studies approaches to the Turkic region including the Middle East, Balkans, Caucasus and Central Asia.
I welcome applications for PhD study on aspects of Turkish politics and foreign policy plus issues of news media freedom in Turkey and elsewhere.
I am currently under contract to write a Palgrave Pivot edition on the Securitisation of News in Turkey which will be published in the Spring of 2020.
My past research centred on the security implications of the Turkey-EU accession process
My future research will focus on the place of journalism in liberal and illiberal democracies - focussing on the UK and Turkey.
