About Me

I am a second year PhD student in the Computer Science department at Brown University. I am currently part of the Data Management group and advised by Tim Kraska and Uğur Çetintemel.

I received my undergraduate degree from Bilkent University in Turkey. During that time I undertook a few side projects and volunteered for the Erasmus Student Network and Crossing Paths.
