Hi. I am a fifth year PhD student in CS at Cornell. My minor is ORIE with Applied Prob. and Stats. concentration. I am advised by Claire Cardie.
I received my BS degree in Computer Engineering and BA degree in Mathematics from Bogazici University.

I am interested in machine learning with applications to natural language processing and information retrieval. I am particularly interested in representation learning and deep learning. I also regularly collaborate with my former (undergrad) advisor Ethem Alpaydin on decision trees.


Experience
