Current Research


Currently I am working on how existing urban inequalities, like segregation and gentrification, are being reproduced in the “sharing economy.” In this project I use a number of unique datasets on home-sharing practices. The research is supported by funds from the MacArthur Foundation, through the Connected Learning Network.

Our research team, led by Juliet Schor, has published extensively on the emergent sharing economy. 

 

Past Research


My past research has mostly focused on the welfare state, especially in developing countries. I did my master’s thesis on the evolution of the welfare state in Turkey after 1980.
