I am a cultural and medical anthropologist whose research and teaching interests include medical anthropology, gender, reproduction and health, ethics and politics of care. My work has been supported by Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, American Research Institute in Turkey and several Yale University grants. I am currently developing my first book manuscript tentatively titled At Least Three Children: Reproduction, Health and Care in “Mother-Friendly” Turkey. Drawing on in-depth interviews and ethnographic observation at clinics, hospitals and homes, At Least Three Children illustrates the ongoing negotiations that shape the practices, aspirations and decisions around reproduction in Turkey.
