I am a linguist and a registered speech and language therapist and a member of the Health Care Professions Council and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. I joined the Department of Human Communication Sciences at the University of Sheffield in November 2018 after completing my first degree in psychology at Bogazici University, my master’s and doctoral studies at the Linguistics and Cognitive Science Department of University of Delaware with Prof Anna Papafragou, and my second master’s degree in speech and language pathology at Teachers College, Columbia University.

Following my PhD, I held postdoctoral researcher positions at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in the Netherlands and at the University of Cambridge as part of the interdisciplinary MEITS Project. My current research interests include multilingualism and its relation to speech and language difficulties, first language acquisition, and language and cognition interface. Previously I held academic appointments at NYU, Rutgers University, CUNY, and Princeton University.
