Research interests

I am interested in social stratification and youth transitions with a focus on ethnicity. My Ph.D. research focuses on educational outcomes and social mobility in Turkish migrant families in Europe in comparison to the non-migrant families from similar backgrounds in Turkey. In this body of research, I studied the educational outcomes across generations and investigated the transmission of socio-economic resources over three generations. Upon finishing my Ph.D., I worked on housing transitions of young adults from parental home. In this particular area, I have investigated the leaving home patterns of young adults in Britain and their homeownership transitions. Currently, in collaboration with Professor Sharon Gewirtz, I work on youth transitions to education, training and employment in England.
