Short Background

After finishing my undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Bilkent University in 2001, I went to Georgia Tech to get my PhD in electrical and computer engineering. Since then, I have been working on problems associated with multimedia applications that generate many (often high-bandwidth and time-critical) flows of information with complex inter-flow semantic relationships. After graduating in 2006, I started at Cisco's Video and Content Platforms Research and Advanced Development Group. I architected, designed and developed algorithms, protocols, products and solutions in the service provider and enterprise video domains. Papers, talks and presentations from my Cisco projects are available here.

I left Cisco in late 2015, and started my own company - Networked Media, where I offer consulting services to industrial, legal and academic institutions in the IP video space. In June 2016, I also started as an assistant professor at Özyeğin University Computer Science Department, where I am teaching networking and multimedia courses to grads and undergrads. I also spend a considerable amount of time on services in the academic world.
