Fields of interest

My fields of interest include (Ottoman) Turkish history and culture, and Islamic art and material culture. My research specialization lies in Ottoman Turkish art and material culture, in particular late Ottoman architecture and architectural decoration. My current research project focuses on late Ottoman architectural and interior decoration and studies religious wall paintings in relation to political and socio-cultural developments. The research combines fieldwork, and (art) historical analysis of both architecture, architectural and interior decoration, artifacts and texts and tries to contribute to a better understanding of the Late Ottoman cultural environment.
