I received my B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Bilkent University, Turkey, in Computer Engineering and Information Science, in 1992, 1994, and 2000, respectively. Before joining the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the Ohio State University in October 2001, I worked at Johns Hopkins University as a Research Associate and at the University of Maryland as a Visiting Research Scientist. Currently, I also hold a joint appointment in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. ( Complete Vita )
My research interests broadly includes topics in high performance computing, combinatorial scientific computing and
biomedical informatics. In particular, I am interested in graph
and hypergraph partitioning, workload and data decomposition for
irregular domains, scheduling, parallel graph and hypergraph
algorithms, run time systems for high performance computing and
data-intensive computing, parallel algorithms for scientific and
biomedical applications. More information can be found on my research page or HPC Lab website that I
