Ph. D., Computer Science
University of Toronto
I have graduated from Sabanci University (B.Sc. in Computer Science and Engineering, minor in Mathematics) in 2006 and joined the Computational Biology Lab at the University of Toronto. Supervised by Michael Brudno, I worked on protein contact map prediction and received my M. Sc. in Computer Science in 2008. Continuing my research at the Brudno Lab, I became interested in genome assembly and developed specialized assembly algorithms for highly polymorphic organisms. I have received my Ph. D. from the University of Toronto in 2012. I have since been working as a post-doctoral fellow at the Vancouver Prostate Centre.
