Research Interests

My research draws from relational thinking in economic geography (assemblage theory and actor-network theory in particular) and explores the strategies and practices to achieve the resilience and sustainability of community economies and alternative modes of economic organization and practice. My research interest lies in Turkey and I work on the cooperatives and communes in Northern Kurdistan (eastern and southeastern Turkey).
