Bio:
I did my undergraduate and M.S. at
Bogazici University,
Dept. of IE.
I received my Ph.D. from
Columbia University,
Dept. of IEOR.
After Columbia, I spent a year at
CORE (Belgium)
as a postdoctoral fellow and two years at
Cornell University,
School of ORIE
as a visiting scientist.
Before joining the Math Sciences Department at IBM, I was working
at AT&T Labs.
