I am an Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics at the Department of English Language Teaching, Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey and the director of the Micro-Analysis Network. 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 especially in online task-oriented settings and computer assisted language learning.

I am also 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, and Linguistics & Education., TESOLQuarterly,  Pragmatics, and ROLSI.  I also gave some presentations and contributed to international research projects.
