Background


I worked as a researcher from 2009 to 2013 in the Computational Research Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). Some of major previous projects include bandwidth guaranteed virtual circuit co-scheduling and QoS management, development of data movement mechanisms for 100Gbps network applications, and evaluation of the new 100Gbps nationwide platform supported by the DoE’s Advanced Network Initiative (ANI) program.

Before coming to Berkeley Lab, I was in the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) at Louisiana State University (LSU). At CCT, I got involved in various interesting projects, including Stork data scheduler, CyberTools project, and PetaShare state-wide distributed storage. I also worked as a summer intern in Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2008. My early academic work also includes parallel algorithms, adaptive mesh refinement, and scientific computing.

I got my  doctoral degree in Computer Science in 2010 from LSU. My Ph.D. advisor was Tevfik Kosar (now at SUNY Buffalo). I also hold M.S. and B.S. degrees in Computer Engineering from Boğaziçi University, T
ürkiye. My advisor was Can Ozturan (Bogazici University).
