Introduction
With previous experience in ethnobotanical fieldwork and laboratory work involving cytotoxicity and bioactive phytochemicals, I am interested in the connections between science and society. Currently, I research technological change in Health, along with social acceptance of these changes, so that we might better understand the articulations and interactions between health, technology, and society.

Article
Full-text available
Domesticated species are impacted in unintended ways during domestication and breeding. Changes in the nature and intensity of selection impart genetic drift, reduce diversity and increase the frequency of deleterious alleles. Such outcomes constrain our ability to expand the cultivation of crops into environments that differ from those under which...
Article
Purpose This paper aims to provide some insights for the use of humor when addressing intercultural issues after an international merger. Design/methodology/approach The author focuses on a few key articles that deal with intercultural issues in international contexts, including an ethnographic case study of a merging firm. Findings Although h...
Article
Full-text available
The processes through which urban centers and rural peripheries influence each other reach beyond landscapes and town borders into something deeper and more culturally substantial. Over the past decade, a rural village in Turkey has been re-constructing itself to represent a nostalgic historical era that is part of the local natural landscape that...
Conference Paper
The aim of our study is to examine motivation and value creation in entrepreneurship before a business is even considered to be an option for an innovator. Using an approach of extreme prospection with a sample of participants in health innovation competitions, we attempt to uncover the motivational roots of entrepreneurial activities in translatin...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Background: In twenty years, the UN estimates that over three-fourths of the world’s people will live in urban areas. Even today, the majority of the human population in the world lives in cities, but our understanding of what it means to interact with plants and nature in these settings has been defined by the discourse of mostly architectural, ho...
Conference Paper
All domesticated species are impacted in unintended, often negative ways during domestication and breeding. Their narrow genetic status derives from random demographic processes and from changes in the nature of selection during breeding and cultivation. Loss of adaptive alleles, fixation of deleterious alleles, and low genetic diversity in cultiva...
Article
Full-text available
Vulnerable workers can be expected to be more subject to direct managerial control over the work process and have little opportunity for participation in shaping their work environment. Opportunities for participation are not only in themselves desirable, but may also have beneficial effects on job quality. However, there has been little exploratio...
Article
Full-text available
Acute gastrointestinal illness is a common, life-threatening complication for rural villagers in developing countries such as Turkey. Our study identifies and describes the classification schemes surrounding acute gastrointestinal illness, or diarrhea, and its folk treatments among Central Anatolian villagers. We conducted informal small group inte...
Book
Full-text available
Despite much legislative progress in gender equality over the past 40 years, there are still gender gaps across many aspects of the labour market. Inequalities are still evident in areas such as access to the labour market, employment patterns and associated working conditions. This report explores gender differences across several dimensions of wo...
Article
Full-text available
Bioprospecting, a vital step in the pharmaceutical production process, is also one of the most controversial and socially complex aspects in the pharmaceutical industry. The current conceptual paper reviews and theorizes this controversial sector by laying out the key elements of social, political and economic conflict involved in bioprospecting, f...
Article
Full-text available
Infectious diarrhea results in 2 to 5 million deaths worldwide per year, and treatments that are safe, effective, and readily available are under investigation. The field of medicinal ethnobotany focuses on plants that are used by different cultural groups for treating various diseases and evaluates these plants for efficacy and cytotoxicity. In th...

This is an open thought question for future xenobotanists.  I read that NASA is hiring a new round of astronauts for their Mars project, and it made me think about botany that is not on Earth (xenobotany).

This study builds on findings that demonstrate how female SIEs’ (Self-Initiated Expatriates) mobility experiences differ from their male counterparts, notably in terms of to what extent their move is intricately interwoven with their relationships. Our exploration adds to existing knowledge on the gendered nature of the SIE experience, focusing on the interplay between gender and mobility.
