I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Wayne State University. I received my B.Sc. in Computer Engineering and MS and PhD degrees in Computer Science and Informatics in 2011 and 2015, respectively. I have worked as a research scientist for a healthcare consulting company in Michigan while completing my Ph.D. Before joining Wayne State, I was an Assistant Professor at Ozyegin University, Istanbul in School of Business, Department of Management Information Systems. My research interests are in the area of data mining, descriptive and predictive modeling, and probabilistic graphical models with applications in healthcare.
