Thanks for visiting my webpage. You can find basic information about my ongoing research and the courses I offer in this webpage.

In general, I am interested in human-computer interaction, human-machine teaming, neuroergonomics, computational cognitive modeling, computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) and computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW). My research focuses on interactional, ocular and neural aspects of collaborative learning, problem solving, decision making, and skill acquisition via simulation training. I tend to use mixed methods including interaction analysis at the qualitative end, and dual/multiple eye-tracking, optical brain imaging (fNIRS), and electrophysiology (EEG/EOG/ECG/EMG) at the quantitative end.

I am currently serving as the director of the METU Modeling and Simulation R&D Center where I have been managing research projects focusing on cognitive workload assessment, intelligent simulation training systems, and operator health monitoring systems.

I am an alumnus of Drexel University and I am still in close contact with multiple research teams there. I am involved with the Virtual Math Teams (VMT) project led by Gerry Stahl from the College of Computing and the Math Forum at Drexel University, first as a graduate student and now as a collaborator. I also work closely with the Optical Brain Imaging team at Drexel University via the CONQUER collaborative, especially in the domain of human factors and aviation psychology. I also collaborate with Frank J Lee from the Entrepreneurial Game Studio (EGS) on game-based learning projects including the use of fNIR.
