I am currently studying contemporary drug policies, specifically decriminalization, drug consumption rooms and drug tests. My studies focus on comparative decriminalization drug policy at the Finnish drug policy in the National Institute of Health and Welfare (THL).
Previously I worked for the Turkish government and I had 16 years of experience in the public sector. Institutional priorities directed me to develop evidence-based interventions for drug supply and demand. I conducted a content analysis of court files to reformulate encountering strategies at the street, national and international levels.
Moreover, I managed two European Monitoring Centre for Drug and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) projects, wastewater analysis and retail/wholesale drug price collection systems in Turkey. I developed a data collection method for Turkey that enables governments to report illegal drug prices to the international communities. I extended these micro-level research to national and international level drug policy evaluations.
