Biography

Ayse joined Durham University Business School in 2012 after completing her PhD at the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, USA.

She studies stability of matching in markets ranging from one-to-one to many-to-many matching models and include house allocation, marriage markets, college admissions, hospital-intern markets, entry-level and senior-level labour markets as special cases. Ayse pursues a game theoretic approach to matching problems and studies strategic interactions among the participants in the aforementioned markets.
