I am currently working at the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Istanbul Technical University. My current research focuses on two aspects in planning, mobilities and socio-economic transformation. Within these research fields, I am focusing on the processes and actions that lead to changes in the built environment. Through this I aim to demonstrate how changes in socio-economic conditions and mobility choices lead to spatial realities that challenge existing planning practices. Within this framework I seek to demonstrate how institutions respond to such changes, particularly the processes they adopt for responding to these changes and the creation of new policy frameworks.
