I studied Electrical Engineering at Bilkent University as an undergraduate.
I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics
at University of Wisconsin in 1998. After the Ph.D., I held one year post-doc positions at Indiana University
in Bloomington, U.S.A. and at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada.
Since August 2000, I have been a faculty member of Department of Mathematics at Bilkent University, and since 2012,
a Professor of Mathematics. During 2007-2008 and 2014-2015 academic years, I was a visitor at McMaster University.
I received TUBA-Distinguished young researcher award (2005-2008), TUBITAK
Encouragement award (2007),
H. Lyman Hooker Distinguished visitor award from McMaster University (2007 and 2014), and Masatoshi Gündüz Ikeda
award (2009). I served on the editorial board of Turkish Journal of Mathematics (2009-2014). I have been a member of
Bilimler Akademisi (Science Academy) since 2013.
