About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Eurecom Graduate School and Research Center, working with Engin Kirda.
I have carried out my master thesis at the International Secure System Lab in Vienna while I was an ERASMUS visitor.
Afterwards, I obtained my master's degree in computer science from the Institute of Engineering and Science of
Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey.

My research interests embrace most of the computer security problems with special focus on botnet detection.
