I am a fourth-year Computer Science PhD student at Boston University focusing natural language processing. Before that I received my masters in Statistics from Carnegie Mellon University. I earned my bachelors both in Industrial and Computer Engineering from Koç University, Istanbul. My current research interests are on leveraging natural language for continual learning, collaborative language models and learning from natural language feedback. In the past, I worked on a diverse set of problems including resource-constrained continual learning, low-resource machine translation and ethics in NLP.

Responsibilities included high-dimensional statistical analysis of clinical trial data for CAR-T therapy, a highly promising personalized immunotherapy for cancer. I created an explainable predictive modelfor treatment efficacy, revealed outstanding findings and communicated them to clinical experts.
Implementation of meta-heuristic algorithms such as genetic algorithm and simulated annealing to address cash management across ATM networks.
Responsibilities included determining optimal load factors for trucks using CPLEX Optimizer and dispersion analysis of goods across the logistics center.
