Research on school segregation
At the IAS, I am part of Interdisciplinary research project on school segregation, funded by the Swedish Research Council, through SIMSAM. I am currently involved in a work on the dynamics of ethnic school segregation, with a focus on the school choice and mobility of students between schools at the compulsory school level in Sweden. We use discrete choice models to better understand the focus on ethnic compositions within schools in decision making, as well as the feedback mechanisms of these choices that create the ethnic segregation within and between schools and neighborhoods.
Data ManagementApart from the research on dynamics of school segregation, I am also responsible from the maintenance of individual level register data, that the researchers at IAS has access.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Hacettepe University in Turkey and Master’s in Sociological Demography from Stockholm University in Sweden. For my master’s thesis, I have worked with discrete time event history models. Prior to my master’s education, I have studied economics at the doctoral programme in Economics (UADPhilEcon) at the University of Athens, Greece.
