About Me

I'm a senior Marie Curie Research Fellow in the International Centre for Policing and Security at the USW. I did my PhD at the University of Nottingham at the School of Politics and International Relations. I have also fifteen years of policing experience in Turkey. In these years I have worked for different police departments including counterterrorism, logistics, forensic document examination, crime analysis, and police station. I have also international policing experience in the United Nations Misson in Kosovo between 2007 and 2009. In recent years, I have focused on research projects concerned with public-private partnership models to tackle cybercrime. The sharing economy model or in other words Uberization is the main theoretical and governance model I am trying to develop in this domain to inspire law enforcement agencies to collaborate with private cybercrime investigators.
