I am an MSc student in Computer Engineering at Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, Turkey, advised by Susan Michele Üsküdarlı. I am also a teaching assistant in the same department and a member of TABILAB. My research interests include computational linguistics, linguistic variation and phonology. I’m hoping to merge my interests in linguistics and computer science in my research.
