During my stay in UC Berkeley, I intend to conduct my postdoctoral research project entitled "Kocabasis: The Greek Orthodox community leaders and their local impact in the Ottoman society during 18th century ". I will focus on the social-economic historical analysis of the social structure of Greek community during the Ottoman period and with this aim, I will analyze the Greek Community leaders' identities and the role of their impact on the Ottoman local people (Greek) during the 18th century with the data derived from the Ottoman archives' sources.
