In his Master dissertation, Tobias evaluated how the construction of the mega projects "Istanbul Airport" and "Kanal Istanbul" politically and economically affects one of Istanbul's last rural areas, the district of Arnavutköy and what these mega projects reveal about the connection between neo-liberalism and authoritarianism in the Turkish state. 

 

In his Bachelor thesis, Tobias analysed in a qualitative research how German foreign correspondents in Istanbul used Social Media to cover the failed coup d'état of July 15, 2016.
