Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, Loughborough University
I joined the department in January 2017 as Lecturer in Politics and International Relations. I have a Ph.D. from Aberystwyth University, and MA in European Politics from Lund University. Prior to Loughborogh. I was Assistant Professor at Bilkent University, Department of International Relations (2011-2016).

My research is on the areas of migration, security, Turkey's foreign policy, Euro-Mediterranean relations, and Middle East politics. I am the author of Rethinking Security in the Age of Migration: Trust and Emancipation in Europe (Routledge, 2013) and Turkey, Power and the West: Gendered International Relations and Foreign Policy (I.B. Tauris, 2016).

My primary research on migration is mainly concerned with irregular forced migration in the European Union from neighbouring regions with specific focus on how international and national policies affect security of migrants in need of protection and of EU citizens.

The other leg of my research concerns gendered articulations of global politics as well as the role of emotions in international relations. In relation to the former, I focus on how global power hierarchies are produced through ‘gendering’ in Western and non-Western contexts. I am particularly interested in neoliberal masculinities.

Furthermore, I am working on how to think about global protest movements in relation to the discipline of IR. In relation to this, I am a co-investigator in the project entitled ‘Exploring Civil Society Strategies for Democratic Renewal’, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
