|I was born in the beautiful,
fascinating Turkish city, Istanbul,
almost thirty years ago. Following an early-age exposure to engineering,
electronics, and computers, I chose a formal education in Computer
Engineering (more or less). This continued, so I found myself working
towards a Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering here in States. I am a Ph.D candidate in the ECE department of Rutgers University, as a member of WINLAB.
Throughout these years, I found some time (spanning almost
nine years in total) and had the chance to work professionally
University, and recently Intel
Not to forget my share from entrepreneurship, I and one of my
college-mates have started a small business in IT sector in
A & A Computers Ltd., which run until we sold it in 2001.
Also, a good share of my years on earth embraced activities around
music. I sang in a few polyphonic choruses, played the guitar for about
ten years, even participated in a musical.
Lately, I have been planning for the remaining (hopefully short) part
of my Ph.D. studies and enjoying the life as an engaged man.
