Vuslat Şeker has been working as a postdoctoral researcher within the Research Group Mathematical and Analytical Competence of Professionals since November 2023. She investigates the teaching and learning of mathematics and statistics, aiming to improve mathematical, statistical, and analytical skills across different educational contexts.

Vuslat completed her Ph.D. in Mathematics Education with a specialization in Statistics Education at Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkiye) in July 2023. Her dissertation focused on the statistical teaching practices of middle school mathematics teachers to identify both strengths and areas for improvement in current teaching practices, ultimately contributing to statistics education for students to become statistically literate citizens.
