Biography

I am an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of University of Illinois at Chicago. Before joining University of Illinois at Chicago, I was a Postdoctoral Associate in the CNRG group at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of California, Irvine, M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Sabanci University, and B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Istanbul University. During my Ph.D. at University of California, Irvine, I was a member of Networking Group. I worked as a summer intern in AT&T Labs Research, Docomo USA Labs, and Microsoft Research, Cambridge.

Research Summary

My research interests are in the area of networking: design, analysis, and optimization of network protocols and algorithms. I am particularly interested in network optimization, network coding, and multimedia streaming. Currently, I am working at the intersection of cross layer optimization and system implementation, with particular focus on flow control, routing, and network coding.
