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.

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 social semiotic analysis, multimodal interaction analysis, thematic analysis, content analysis and social network analysis.
