I received a BA (2011) and an MA (2015) in English Language Teaching from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey). I am currently a PhD candidate in the same program.

After receiving my BA degree, I worked at Kempeleen kirkonkylan koulu (Kempele, Finland) for a year as a Comenius Assistant and a teacher of English. I have been working as an EFL instructor in the Department of Foreign Languages at TOBB University of Economics and Technology (Ankara, Turkey) since 2013. During my time at TOBB ETU, I worked in Curriculum Development Unit (2014-2016), Extracurricular Activities Unit (2016-2018), and Professional Development Unit (2018 -).

I am a member of International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL), İngiliz Dili Öğretimi ve Mesleki Gelişim Derneği (TESOL in Turkey), and English Language Teacher Education Research (ELTER).
