About

I am a 2nd-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at Politecnico Milano and a Visiting Ph.D. Researcher at MIT Media Labs, Laboratory for Social Machines. As a Research Fellow at Data Science Research Group in Politecnico Milano, my research topic covers Computational Social Science specifically the Stance Classification, Topic Discovery, and Machine Learning areas.

Besides having an academics background, I also have 10+ years of solid professional working experience in various companies including Vodafone R&D,  my own mobile software development company, management consulting analysis at Accenture, and many other part-time jobs, internships, etc. Also, I had taken the role of being Managing Partner of family-owned architecture company for 7 years.

I believe the power of non-profit organizations to bring value others’ lives. While I was an undergrad student, I re-founded and led the Informatics Club of Galatasaray University for 2 years. After that, I represented Microsoft in my university as a Student Partner, then I joined the Young Leadership and Entrepreneurship Organization JCI, by founding a new branch. There, I had taken many roles, as project director, local chapter vice president. All of these responsibilities were amazing. I am always open to the activities of non-profit organizations.
