Research Interests:

My primary research interests revolve around cognitive development during the preschool period. A key challenge in preschool education lies in understanding how educational tools, teaching methodologies, and learning techniques impact cognitive skills. I am particularly intrigued by the potential of neuroimaging methods to probe the developing brains of preschoolers, both typically developing and atypical. By combining various modalities such as functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), electroencephalography (EEG), along side behavioral measures like eye-tracking, video recordings, and motion tracking, we can gain insights into the cognitive processes underlying early learning. And he is also regarding with preschool teacher/parent training in Educational Neuroscience.

Recent Research: In my recent work, I have focused on investigating the problem-solving abilities of typically developing preschool children. Additionally, I have examined the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on learning losses on preschoolers and investigated views of preschool teachers' on innovative educational practices.

Nowadays, I study on the effect of educational ıntelligence games on the cognitive development of preschool children with special educational need (SEN).
