computer scientist

I am a computer scientist aspiring to deliver, and help others deliver, high-quality code that is reliable, fast, and maintainable.

I obtained my PhD in Computer Science in September 2010 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook under the excellent supervision of Annie Liu. My PhD thesis was on Efficient Datalog Queries with Time and Space Complexity Guarantees. A list of my academic publications can be found here.

I am currently an independent software consultant since Jan 2014, and an visiting assistant professor at the State University of New York at Stony Brook since Nov 2016.

As a software consultant, I am currently working on an allocation solution for Ralph Lauren, and an allocation solution for Gordmans. I have completed a database management solution for Ralph Lauren, an allocation solution for At Home Stores.

During Fall '14, I taught Introduction to Data Modeling and Processing in the Data Analytics MS program at Sabanci University.

Any questions? Send me an email:

On a more personal note, I was born in Jan ’85 in the most beautiful city on earth. I got my BSc in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics at Sabanci University. I currently live in Europe, but can see Asia from my house (can you guess where I live, Ms. Palin?).

I like swimming, running, cycling, football, cooking, eating, classical music, modal jazz, 70s rock, nouvelle vague cinema, analytic philosophy, 20th century politics, linguistics, and learning in the most general sense. Currently learning to play the piano, and to speak German. I am native in Turkish, fluent in English, upper-intermediate in French. If you are a foreigner in Turkey and interested in learning Turkish, please send me an email.

I sometimes read, and rarely write.
