Bio

My name is Burcu H. Tatar-Ozkum (she/her/hers) and I am a doctoral student in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Child Development. I am currently working with Dr. Lori Skibbe in the Early Language and Literacy Investigations Lab. I examine how digital media use (tablet, smartphone, Ebook, mobile apps) can be leveraged to promote young children’s language and literacy outcomes within their homes. I am also interested in how best to assess children’s learning within a remote testing environment. I hold an MS in Developmental Psychology from Middle East Technical University, Turkey.
