I am an Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics at the Department of English Language Teaching, Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey and the coordinator of the Micro-Analysis Network data sessions. I previously worked at the Centre de linguistique appliquée, Université de Neuchâtel as a postdoctoral researcher and at Kırıkkale University as an English language instructor.

My main aim as a researcher is to contribute to the fields of conversation analysis, CALL, TBLT, and language teacher education. My research draws on conversation analysis for L2 learning, teaching, and teacher education especially in digital spaces.

I am the recipient of the Best PhD Presentation Award given in memory of Jaclyn Ng Shi Ing at the 17th International CALL Conference, Tarragona, Spain and Hacettepe University Social Sciences Award. My recent papers appeared in Learning, Culture & Social Interaction, Linguistics & Education, TESOL Quarterly,  Pragmatics, ROLSI, Applied Linguistics Review, and Classroom Discourse.  I also gave some presentations and contributed to international research projects.
