Course Leader - MSc Historic Building Conservation
|Abitur (Deutsch Schule, Istanbul)||Architect (Istanbul)||PhD (TechU Istanbul)|
I joined Portsmouth in 2000 having previously worked in higher education in Berlin, Istanbul and Bahrain. I am an architectural historian and a restoration architect, and have dedicated my research in the last few years to invented identity issues in design history. I am also an expert on international heritage and regional architecture, with a number of book chapters and papers in these areas.
