Deniz is a micro development economist with a focus on development economics, population economics and regional economic development. Her PhD investigated multidimensional interdependencies among European countries and dynamics of poverty and inequality both in the UK and Europe. Recent research has focused on trends in multidimensional poverty and its societal impacts, distributional effects of interdependencies among European countries, skills gap in regional labour markets, health outcomes and public participation methods.

Her most recent study 'A person centric approach to understanding the contribution of socio-economic position to health inequalities' undertakes a renewed focus on the relationship between diversity, household income and poor health in deprived areas and focuses on the impact that diversity and socio-economic conditions have on health outcomes.
