I am Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Ozyegin University.I got my Ph.D. from Computer Science at Boston University in 2013. I did my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at Middle East Technical University.
My research interests are in the field of measurement and design of large-scale network systems as an application of statistical inference and data mining. I work on statistical inference problems in the context of the internet performance with applications to network management, traffic engineering, and business intelligence.
I have a passion for every aspect of content delivery from computer network applications to social dissemination of the content and its impact on the individuals and the society. I have published papers and had industry collaborations in the field.
Currently I am working on CDN related problems such as scalability of path measurements and efficient server mapping, anomaly detection in large-scale networks, load balancing optimization in mobile networks through self organizing solutions.
My work has been published in top conferences and journals. My projects have been supported by National Foundation of Turkey (TUBITAK) and by private industry such as Akamai and Turkcell. In 2013, I received the Applied Networking Research Prize awarded by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). In addition, in 2013, I received the Excellence in Research Award given by Boston University.
I am an independent thinker who gets excited by developing novel solutions to hard
problems. I am a life-long self-learner and great at keeping track of the state-of-the-art in my field as well as the other fields science. I am a strong believer in sharing knowledge.
To that end, for the past four years, I have been teaching Computer Networks, Big Data Analysis and Online Social Networks courses at graduate level in my current
university as well as the leading companies in Turkey such as Turkcell Technologies
and Vestel Technologies.
