I graduated from Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey with a B.A. in Psychology in 2015. In Fall 2015, I joined the Memory Lab at Washington University in St. Louis as a graduate student.
My research is broadly focused on the cognitive processes that are involved in metacognition and the application of cognitive psychology to human learning. I have several projects that investigate the confidence-accuracy relationship in recognition memory and eyewitness memory, people’s judgments about their knowledge, and how they use these judgments to guide their learning as well as how these judgments affect their learning. I have also been working on understanding how retrieval practice and test formatting affect memory retention.
