About

murat_gunel_1Murat Gunel was born in Turgutlu in 1976. He attended to the vocational and technical high school. Afterwards, he took his BS degree in physics education from Balikesir University. He worked as a science teacher at public school in Istanbul. While he was a teacher, he received Turkish Ministry of Education Scholarship to attend graduate school in US. In 2003 he received his MS degree with major in science education and minor in statistics from Iowa State University. His PhD degree was also pursued from the same institution again with major in science education and minor in statistics in 2006. His doctoral dissertation and research carrier was awarded with outstanding doctoral research and research excellence awards by Iowa State University. Upon completion of his graduate work in US, Dr. Gunel worked at Ataturk and Ahi Evran Universities in Turkey as a program coordinator, department chair, and faculty board member. He was appointed as an assistant professor in 2007, associate professor in 2008 and full professor in 2014

Dr. Gunel’s research interest areas include argumentation based science inquiry, improving critical thinking skills, professional development for teachers, non-traditional writing in science, improving students’ understanding of science with multi modal representations. He took roles as a research assistant, coordinator, consultant, and principal investigator in several national and international projects that founded by Turkish Ministry of Education, The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, National Science Foundation, The Institute of Education Sciences, and Arthur Vining Davis Foundation. Currently, aside from being PI of ongoing national and international projects, Dr. Gunel serves as an reviewer, external evaluator and editorial board member for national and international journals as well as funding agencies.
