I am a professor at METU Department of Mathematics and Science Education. My research focuses on developing effective classroom and planning practices, design based research, and using technology in mathematics education.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics Education from the UCF College of Education and Human Performance. In my Ph.D. thesis, I focused on the practices of an expert middle school mathematics teacher in teaching integers effectively.

I also hold M.S. degrees in Mathematics Education from Gazi University and Actuarial Sciences from Hacettepe University. I completed my undergraduate education in Mathematics in Ankara University.
