    I am working at the University of West England since September 2014. Prior to UWE Bristol, I was at the Faculty of Business at Izmir University of Economics (Turkey). My earlier academic career had been at Lancaster University Management School (UK), where I undertook research on dynamic capabilities and organisational learning for my PhD, and at Sabancı University (Turkey). Simultaneously, I worked as a Consultant on various projects ranging from organisational development to strategic planning.
