Research Overview

I am interested in knowledge acquisition and transmission processes in infants and young children. My current research investigates the emergence of infants’ early information transmission behaviour, the type of information that they prefer to transmit others, and the underlying motivations that may drive this behaviour. I will be using interdisciplinary tools to explore these research interests.

Prior to my doctoral studies at Lancaster University, I received my B.A. and M.A. degrees from Boğaziçi University, Turkey. My master’s thesis explored the selectivity in children’s information transmission by focusing on the role of group affiliation of the recipients and the type of information transmitted.
