Who am I?
I am a CNRS researcher (CRCN) working at
LIP, ENS de Lyon, in the ROMA team. Previously, I was
a post-doctoral researcher at the Parallel Algorithms Project,
CERFACS, Toulouse, France. Before that, I was at the Department of Mathematics and
Computer Science, Emory University, Atlanta, GA, USA. I have received BSc (1997), MSc (1999), and PhD degrees
(2005) from the Department of
Computer Engineering, Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, and HDR (2019) from ENS de Lyon.
