    About me

    I am currently a professor of English Linguistics in the Institute of Modern Languages at the University of Würzburg. Before coming to Würzburg, I worked as an assistant professor (Juniorprofessor) of English and General Linguistics in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Konstanz (2005-2011). In Summer 2010, I became a Senior Associate Member of St. Antony’s College, which allowed me to have a research stay at the University of Oxford. During my assistant professorship, I substituted for the professorship of English Linguistics (2009-2010) and the professorship of Psycho-/ Neurolinguistics (2008-2009) at Konstanz.

    Before I got on the professorial track, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow within the Special Research Unit 471 ‘Variation and Evolution in the Lexicon’ funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Prior to that, I taught various linguistics courses at the Department of Linguistics and Cognitive Science, at the University of Delaware in the United States of America, where I was a graduate student (1998-2003), and a Competitive Fellow. I did my undergraduate studies in English Language Teaching and Linguistics at Boğaziçi (Bosphorus) University, Istanbul, Turkey, and at the State University of New York at Binghamton, New York, USA. I am a native of Istanbul.
