In 1994, I graduated with the first ranking from the Department of Computer Science & Engineering , Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey. In the same year, I started my graduate study in the Department of Computer Engineering and Information Science at Bilkent University, Ankara. In 1995, I was awarded with a government scholarship to study in USA. Then, I completed my studies at Bilkent University, and came to USA in June 1996. Since it was a requirement of my scholarship, I started MS again and received second MS degree, in December 1997, from the Department of Computer and Information Science at Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY.
In January 1998, I started PhD in the Department of Elec. & Computer Eng. at the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ. I have received my PhD degree in December 2001. My dissertation title was "QoS routing in packet networks." I worked with Dr. Marwan Krunz who is the director of Broadband Networking Laboratory at the University of Arizona. Since January 2002, I am associated with the Dept. of Computer Science, University of Texas at San Antonio.
Previous terms and classes
I work in the area of computer networks. Specifically, I am interested in quality-of-services (QoS)-based networking issues in both wireline and wireless networks.
Some of the specific topics I worked on include QoS-based routing, multiple constrained path selection under both exact and inaccurate information, efficient dissemination of network-state information, topology aggregation in hierarchical networks, performance evaluation of QoS-based routing protocols, IP-traceback, topology control and neighbor verification in wireless networks, intersection characteristics of the Internet path and trees. Recently I also start working on network security, network measurement and modeling. I am also interested in Distributed Systems, Internet Related Technologies, and Multimedia Applications.
