Burak Taşdizen is Research Associate in the research field “Human, Medicine and Society” within hair:y_less masculinities and coordinator of IRSSC.

Şahinol and Taşdizen are looking at the practices of male hair removal and transplantation practices in the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Turkey.
