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 Languge Education and Culture at the University of Maryland.My research interests include English as an international language 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. In addition, I am currently working on three book projects:
(1) Conceptual Shifts and Contextualized Practices in Education for Glocal Interaction: Issues and Implications (co-edited with Nathanael Rudolph, under contract for Springer) and
(2) Multilingual Professionals in TESOL: Issues, Perspectives and Prospects (co-edited with Luciana de Oliveira, in preparation for Palgrave Macmillan).
(3) I am also the Associate Editor for the Nonnative English-speakers in TESOL section of the upcoming TESOL Encyclopedia of English Language Teaching—a collaborative project by TESOL International Association and Wiley.
