I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan School of Information. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Microsoft Research New York. I received my PhD from the Computer Science Department at University of California, Santa Barbara in December 2012. I received my Bachelors degree from Computer Science Dept. @Bilkent University in Turkey in 2007.
My research interests lie in the area of computational social science; a discipline at the intersection of computer science, statistics, and the social sciences. I am particularly interested in applying large scale data analysis techniques to study problems with social, political, and policy implications.
