Academic Experience

Discounting the years that I have been around Bogazici University graduate school as a student, I worked as a teaching assistant and research assistant at the Computer Science and Engineering Department of Yeditepe University, Turkey for four years. Following this, I have been working as a graduate assistant with no teaching-related duties at WINLAB, Rutgers University, USA for the last couple of years. I compiled the following list (not exhaustive) to give you an idea as to how scholastic circles engaged me over those years.
