I am currently a Software Developer at Google. 

Before starting at Google, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the Calit2 Department of University of California, Irvine working in collaboration with Natasa PrzuljAthina Markopoulou and Carter T. Butts

I completed my Ph.D. studies  in the Department of ComputingImperial College London. My main area of research is Computational Network Analysis. I have been developing Network Topology Comparison and Modelling techniques, and applying these techniques for the analysis of Economic, Biological, Social, and Technological networks.

I got my M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees from the Department of Computer EngineeringMiddle East Technical University. I worked as a teaching/research assistant at METU during my M.Sc. studies (between 2008 - 2010).
