Welcome to my webpage!
I am a faculty member at the Cognitive Science Program at the Informatics Institute, Middle East Technical University, Turkey. My current research interests cover human computer interaction, eye tracking applications, group eye tracking, reading, and cybercognition. I teach graduate courses on visual cognition, eye tracking and cybersystems.
