I work as an Assistant Professor of Elementary and Early Childhood Education in the College of Education at the Middle East Technical University (METU) where I teach courses on Movement Education, Play, Creativity and Visual Arts at the undergraduate level and Embodied Learning at the graduate level. I also work as a Departmental Erasmus Coordinator.

My research interests center on Teacher Education (in-service & pre-service), Embodied Learning, Active Designs for Indoors & Outdoors, Play Pedagogy & Cross-cultural Play, and Creative Thinking.
