Research interests: Economic sociology; international political economy; legal studies; professionals and expertise; and comparative-historical methods.

Melike investigates the global rise in corporate monopolies, the social, political and economic problems they create, and the public policies designed to prevent them using comparative-historical methods. Besides her ongoing projects on antitrust laws and policy, she is currently cooking up new projects exploring the consumer rights protections in the Global South and the moral denouncements of "price gouging" during the Covid-19 pandemic.
