I am a faculty member at the Mathematics Department of Bilkent University. My research fields are analysis of partial differential equations and control theory. I received my PhD in Mathematics from the University of Virginia, where my advisor was Irena Lasiecka. I got my MS in Mathematics and my BS degrees in Mathematics and Computer Engineering from Koç University. I have held positions at Doğuş University, UNC-Charlotte, and IZTECH. I was also a visiting faculty at the University of Cambridge where I worked with Athanassios S. Fokas.
