I am the Andrew R. Jennings Professor of Computing Sciences in
the Department of Computer
and Data Sciences at Case
Western Reserve University (CWRU).
I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science
from Purdue University, and my B.S. and M.S. degrees
from Bilkent University, respectively in
Electrical Engineering and
My research is on the development of algorithms for large-scale
data mining and analysis, with particular emphasis on networks
and graph-structured data.
I mainly focus on biology as the application area,
and develop algorithms for analyzing biological networks
and gaining insights into the systems biology of complex diseases.
I also serve in the steering committee of CWRU's graduate programs in
Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (SYBB) and I am an associate editor
for IEEE/ACM Transactions on
Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (TCBB).
In 2021, I am chairing the program committees of the
12th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM-BCB'2021) and
20th IEEE International Workshop on High Performance Computational Biology (HiCOMB'2021).
