My new home is Stony Brook University Department of Computer Science.
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Science Department at
Carnegie Mellon University since September 2007.
My Ph.D. advisor is Prof. Christos Faloutsos.
I am primarily interested in
data mining and social media analysis; with a focus on anomaly and event detection and pattern mining in large, time-varying graphs
using scalable algorithms and tools.
I graduated from Bilkent University, Turkey with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. During my senior year, I was fortunate to work with Prof. Ozgur Ulusoy on focused crawling and intelligent portals.
Besides research, I am also keen on chess, Argentine tango and Latin dancing.
Large-scale graph mining
Anomaly and event detection
Social network analysis
RTG: generate realistic, time-evolving, weighted graphs (in Matlab).
OddBall: spot anomalous nodes in weighted, unlabeled graphs (in Python and Matlab).
PICS: partition attributed graphs into cohesive clusters (in Matlab).
TourSum: summarize (by a forest of connection trees) a set of nodes in a graph (in Matlab).
