Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology

About me

I am an Assistant Professor of Developmental Psychology at Nuh Naci Yazgan University (Turkey). I received my masters in Developmental Psychology from Boğaziçi University and Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Lehigh University (United States). I worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at The Science of Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University. My research focuses on children’s language and communicative development, spatial thinking, narrative skills, their understanding of other people’s mental world (i.e. theory of mind), and their learning from others. I deeply cares about identifying ways that parents and educators can support children’s learning and development during preschool years and beyond.
