I am an Assistant Professor of TESOL and Applied Linguistics in and the Chair of the Teaching English as a Foreign Language Program at Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus. I completed my PhD in Second Language Education and Culture at the University of Maryland.My research interests include Global Englishes and its implications for language learning, teaching, teacher education, and language policy/planning; issues of (in)equity, privilege, marginalization, justice and professionalism in TESOL; and second language teacher education (particularly teacher identity, teacher cognition, the notion of praxis, and the interplay between SLA and L2 pedagogy). I co-authored Teaching English as an International Language (2013) (with Bedrettin Yazan) published by TESOL Press, Conceptual Shifts and Contextualized Practices in Education for Glocal Interaction (2018) (with Nathanael J. Rudolph) published by Springer. I also served as the Associate Editor for the Nonnative English-speaking Teachers (NNESTs) section of the The TESOL Encyclopedia of English Language Teaching (2018)—a collaborative project by TESOL International Association and Wiley.
In addition, I am currently working on four major projects:
(1) Destabilizing Critical “Assumptions" Regarding Identity, Experience, Inequity and Interaction in (English) Language Teaching — A co-edited special issue under contract and in preparation for Journal of Language, Identity and Education—to be published in 2019),
(2) Borderland Negotiations of Identity in Language Education— A co-edited special issue under contract and in preparation for International Multilingual Research Journal—to be published in 2019),
(3) Attending to the Complexity of Identity and Interaction in Language Education — A co-edited volume under contract and in preparation for Palgrave Macmillan—to be published in 2019), and
(4) Global Englishes Language Teaching — A collaborative manuscript in preparation for Asia TEFL Book Series—to be published in 2019).

I worked with Nathanael Rudolph on an edited volume entitled Conceptual Shifts and Contextualized Practices in Education for Glocal Interaction: Issues and Implications published by Springer in 2018. This book employs the realm of English Language Teaching (ELT) as a discursive point of departure to explore how individuals, groups, entities and institutions apprehend, embrace, deal with, manipulate, problematize and resist glocal flows of people, ideas, information, goods, and technology. It apprehends and attends to tensions arising from the fluidly local-global construction and negotiation of borders of identity and interaction within a diverse array of contexts and English education therein. These tensions, whether conceptual or pedagogical, may arise in and through governmental and institutional policymaking, teacher training, or curriculum and materials development, and in the learning experience both within and beyond the classroom, as teachers and students engage with course content and each other.Hot off the press - 2018
