I am a PhD candidate in Educational Sciences at Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara. I have BA degree in English Language and Literature and MA degree in Comparative Literature. I have 10 years of teaching experience.
I am mainly interested in curriculum development and instructional strategies in low-resource contexts and emergency situations.
In my dissertation research, I am working on the language education for newly arrived migrant students in their transition to national education systems in monolingual settings.
I am awarded to DAAD (Deutsche Akademischer Austauschdienst) one-year grant to conduct the field study in Hamburg. I am currently based in DivER (Diversity in Education Research) as a visiting researcher in the Department of General, Intercultural, and International Comparative Education at Hamburg Universität. My work is supervised by Prof. Dr. Hanife Akar (METU) and Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Ingrid Gogolin (Hamburg Universität).
No further talks are scheduled in Fall 2021.
Hope to be back with my main research findings in 2022!
