Short Bio

I have been with the Computer Engineering Department at Gazi University, Ankara, Turkey since March 2007. Before joining Gazi University, I received my MSc degree in Computer Science from Syracuse University (August 2001) and PhD degree in Computer Science from Arizona State University (December 2006). During my graduate study, I worked on wireless sensor network security. My dissertation title is "Secure data aggregation and false data detection for wireless sensor networks". In Gazi University, I served as assistant department head between 2010 and 2015. I also worked for TUBITAK from 2010 to 2014 as senior researcher. I am a member of IEEE and currently serving as editor/TPC member/reviewer for various leading IEEE and ACM journals and conferences.

My research areas mainly include Internet of Things (IoT), IoT data analysis, wireless sensor networks, network security and data mining. I lead Wireless Sensor Networks and Data Mining Laboratory (KAVEM) where we are currently working on secure fog computing, IoT data analysis, complex event processing and smartgrid security. Here is the list of graduate students and postdocs I work/ed with. If you would like to be a part of my research group, please send your CV to me.

Fall 2017: BM403 Data Communications (Veri İletişimi)
Fall 2017: Data Mining (Veri Madenciliği)
Fall 2017: Computer and Network Security (Bilgisayar ve Ağ Güvenliği)

Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don’t think about what you want to be, but what you want to do. Keep up some kind of a minimum with other things so that society doesn’t stop you from doing anything at all.
–Richard Feynman
