Currently I am working as a postdoctoral researcher (remote) at Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics, Polish Academy of Sciences in Quantum Systems of Informatics Group. I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Boğaziçi University Computer Engineering Department under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Cem Say in 2019. I received my B.S. degree in Mathematics in 2011 and my M.S. degree in Computer Engineering in 2013 from Boğaziçi University. I worked as a teaching assistant at Boğaziçi University between 2011-2019 and as an instructor at Özyeğin University Computer Engineering Department between 2019-2021.

My research area is quantum computing; quantum optimization, quantum annealing and NISQ era algorithms in particular. During my Ph.D., I was mainly interested in automata theory and formal languages, computational complexity, and decidability.

I am a founding member and one of the coordinators of QTurkey, the first quantum technologies community in Turkey. I am also a board member and one of the coordinators of the QEducation Department under QWorld.
