About

I’m a fifth-year PhD student at MIT Linguistics. I’m interested in syntax, morphology, and compositional semantics.

I received my BA in Foreign Language Education and my MA in Linguistics from Boğaziçi University in Istanbul.

I mainly work on Laz, an endangered South Caucasian language spoken in Turkey, and my native language Turkish.
