I am an assistant professor in the department of Media and Journalism Studies at the University of Groningen. At the same time, I work as a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellow in the department of Intercultural Education at the University of Bremen with my project INCLUDED that focuses on digital media literacy education for disadvantaged groups in the migration society. Previously, I worked as an assistant professor and the head of the New Media department at the Kadir Has University between September 2014 and July 2019. Between September 2013 and August 2014, I worked as a Mercator-IPC Fellow at the Sabanci University. I finished my PhD studies in Communication and Media Studies at the University of Bremen in 2013. My research interests include digital media use, media and migration, inter- and transcultural communication, digital media literacy and media education.
