About Me

I have been a faculty member in Sabancı UniversityMSIE Programsince 2004. After receiving my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Turkey, I stayed in US for almost three years for my Ph.D. study. Right before Sabanci University, I worked as a post-doctorate research fellow in Holland for two years.

I am married to Pınar Yolum. We have two kids, Poyraz (born 2007) and Güneş (born 2010). When they allow, I try to look into some of the problems coming out of the list below.
