My research interests are in the areas of high performance computing, applications of parallel computing, big data analytics and numerical linear algebra. I primarily work on the design and development of parallel algorithms, numerical methods and software systems that can harness the full potential of state-of-the-art computing platforms to address challenging problems in large scale scientific computations and big-data analytics problems. A distinguishing aspect of my research is the close collaborations that I have built with domain experts in a wide range of fields such as molecular modeling and simulation, computational materials science, nuclear physics. For more detailed information, please see my research page.
I am native of Turkey, originally from Kayseri, born and raised
on the beautiful southwest coast of Turkey.
I received my B.S. degree from Bilkent University in 2004, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Purdue University in 2009 and 2010, respectively; all in Computer Science. Before joining MSU in August 2014, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Scientific Computing Group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).
