I am a 5th year PhD candidate in Computer Science at the Arizona State University, working as a research assistant in the Cognitive Information Processing (CIPS) Laboratory. I hold B.Sc. (2012) and M.Sc. (2014) degrees in Computer Science from the Middle East Technical University. I have been a Visiting Research Assistant at the Machine INtelligence and Data Science (MINDS) research group in University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute (2018) and an undergraduate summer intern at the McKeown Group in the Department of Computer Science of Stanford University (2010).
My research is at the intersection of Machine Learning and Social Computing, particularly Online Political Networks; Social Media Mining; Graph Mining and Spatio-Temporal Pattern Mining.
