As an Assistant Professor in the Department of Local Governments, Urban and Environmental Policies, Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences at Tarsus University, Turkey, I am actively involved in academia. In addition, I am pursuing my PhD in the Applied Sociology Department at Mersin University, Turkey. Since 2021, I have been responsible for teaching Scientific Research Techniques and Publications Ethics within the Political Science and Public Administration graduate program at Tarsus University.

This course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the social aspects of thinking and writing about social science within a defined framework. It covers a wide range of topics, including the methodology of social phenomena, hypothesis development, data acquisition and analysis, and the utilization of qualitative research software programs like MAXQDA. Moreover, I am also involved in teaching the course "Applied Social Science Methodology" for MA and PhD students. This course is focused on equipping students with the necessary skills to effectively employ and analyze qualitative research based on real-project cases using MAXQDA.

Throughout my career, I have conducted over 20 courses and 10 workshops that explore various aspects of MAXQDA, such as "Getting Started with MAXQDA," "Visualization of Data with MAXQDA," and "Training the Coding Process." These initiatives have provided participants with hands-on experience and valuable insights into maximizing the potential of MAXQDA for their research endeavors.

I am a Post-Doc and visiting researcher at the Centre for Innovation Research (CIRCLE), Lund University, having been awarded a grant by The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK). I have conducted a project titled "Data Management Research and Model Suggestion in Urban Economics Structure Analysis," which is supported by TUBITAK as part of a postdoctoral fellowship. The research is being carried out in collaboration between the Centre for Innovation Research (CIRCLE) at Lund University and Tarsus University's Urban Analytics Lab.
