I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Second Language Studies program at Michigan State University. I joined the SLS program in the Fall of 2019 as a Fulbright scholar. I received my BA in Foreign Language Education in 2015 and MA in English Language Teaching in 2018 from Boğaziçi University, Turkey. Before joining the program, I taught EFL at college level in Turkey for four years.

My research interests include

  • second language processing
