My research topic focuses on mainly ‘Non-elite Household Slavery in Crimean Khanate in 1700-1720’. I am intensively working with Kadiasker court records of Crimean Khanate starting from 1700-1701. I read sources in Turkish, Ottoman Turkish, English, and Russian.

My interest areas also include Strong Asymmetrical Dependency (SAD) in the Ottoman Empire, Daily life of Slaves and Captives, Hiring Human Bodies and Dependency in the 18th century, and Deschiphering Ottoman Turkish Archive materials.
