Welcome to my personal website!

I am an associate professor of Industrial Engineering at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey. I joined Boğaziçi University in September, 2013. My research interests focus on large-scale data mining, time series analysis and pattern discovery. 

Before, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Security and Defense Systems Initiative of Arizona State University (ASU) between Aug 2012 and Aug 2013. I recieved my PhD degree in Industrial Engineering from ASU in 2012. My BS and MS degrees are also in Industrial Engineering both from Department of Industrial Engineering of Middle East Technical University (METU) in 2006 and 2008 respectively. During my graduate studies, I worked as a teaching and research assistant.

I worked with Jing Li during my post-doc period. Our research focused on large scale communication network data mining and visualization during that period.

My PhD advisor is George Runger. I worked as his research assistant for 3 years. Broadly speaking, my dissertation research focused on finding efficient representations for the time series pattern discovery and analysis.

Before starting my PhD, I have mainly worked on network optimization problems in which location and flow decisions are made under certain application specific constraints. I gained vast experience on multiobjective optimization and metaheuristics (primarily genetic algorithms) during my studies.
