I joined the Applied Linguistics and Communication team at Newcastle University in December 2016. Prior to that I worked as a Lectuer at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul teaching academic English and TESOL courses. I have also taught English as a foreign language and Turkish as a foreign language at both secondary school level and in adult education in Turkey and in the UK, at King's College, London.
My research interests include Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), in particular Computer Mediated Communication (CMC) and online language learning and teaching.

PhD, MRes in Education, MA in Computer and Instructional Technologies, BA in English Language Teaching
Since 2014, I have been acting as the secretary for the Computer Mediated Communication Special Interest Group (CMC SIG) for EuroCALL.
UniCollaboration : I act in the publications team for the organisation's new journal: Practice and Theory in Telecollaboration and Virtual Exchange
My research to date has focused on technology enhanced foreign language learning and teacher education, particularly on the concept of social presence in multimodal online communication among language learners, interaction and participation in blended learning contexts, instruction-giving sequences in online language teaching, development of speaking and writing skills, task-based language teaching, and affective factors in language learning.
In my research, I employ both qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis methods, including experimental research design, case studies, questionnaires, interviews, multimodal interteraction analysis, thematic analysis, content analysis and social network analysis.
I am currently co-editing a special issue of Writing & Pedagogy titled "Multimodality in Electronic Feedback on Writing".
Current research project
An examination of experienced online language teachers' multimodal instruction-giving practices (Faculty Research Funding, 2018-19) PI
Critical Skills for Life and Work: Developing the Professional Intercultural Communicative Competence of Highly-Skilled Refugees, funded by Erasmus , project website
I teach on the MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL degree. I am the module leader for ALC8022 Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL), ALC8036 Materials Design and Evaluation in TESOL, and I contribute to lectures in ALC8020 Research Methods in Applied Linguistics.
I am interested in supervising masters and PhD students interested in all aspects of CALL and the use of technologies in foreign language learning and teaching. Potential research areas and methods include:
Computer Mediated Communication; Distance language learning and teacher education; TESOL and TESOL teacher education; Affective factors in especially online language learning settings, including motivation and anxiety; Social presence in online language learning communities; Intercultural communication/Telecollaboration; Digital/multimodal literacies in TESOL; Multimodal Interaction Analysis; Semiotics/Social semiotics; Interactional Sociolinguistics
I am most passionate about:
