Dize Dinckol is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation.

Dize is working with Pinar Ozcan, Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Saïd Business School and Director of the Oxford Future of Finance and Technology (Fintech) Initiative, on strategising for trust in AI-based financial services.

Her current research particularly focuses on the drivers and obstacles of trust in autonomous B2C financial services and how they impact business model design and strategy in fintech firms. Dize’s broader research interests sit at the intersection of entrepreneurship, strategy, and business models in the context of artificial intelligence, fintech and regulated markets.

Dize completed her PhD in Business and Management at Warwick Business School, University of Warwick. Her dissertation focused on the UK banking industry following Open Banking regulations (PSD2 in the EU), with special attention to entrepreneurial strategies and business models of fintechs. Her dissertation covered different levels of analysis and perspectives in the UK banking industry, complementing each other to illustrate the changes in the industry at firm, inter-firm and industry levels. 

She completed her Masters degree in Political Economy of Emerging Markets at King's College London with the EU-funded Jean Monnet Scholarship. She received her Bachelors degree in Industrial Engineering from Bilkent University with a full scholarship, where she also completed her minor degree in Psychology. Dize is the recipient of the 2018 Strategic Management Society Research in Organisations Award as part of her open banking research team at Warwick University.
