About Me

I  obtained my  BSc  degree in Mathematics at Yildiz Technical University and MSc degree in Mathematics at Istanbul Technical University in Turkey.  Then,  I have finished my PhD in Applied Mathematics at University of California Merced in May 2014.  I  always enjoy mathematics and its applications. I am  interested in research areas involving data analysis, applied predictive modeling, deterministic and stochastic modeling as well as radiative transport theory, solid & fluid mechanics. Recently, I have been working on problems arising in data science.
