I work on various applications that involve graphs. Recently I have been working on modeling large scale graphs such as those of social networks, cyber networks. I have been also looking at power systems with focus on vulnerability analysis , and resilient network design. My early work was on traditional applications of combinatorial scientific computing such as sparse matrix computations and parallel computing, where the combinatorial algorithms work on the back stage to play an enabling role. Recently, I have started looking at areas where combinatorial problems are directly associated with scientific and engineering goals.

Before joining Sandia, I worked at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory between Oct 2001 and Oct 2008. And before that I received my PhD. in Computer science with the option of computational science and engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (1997–2001), my M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science from Bilkent University, Turkey, in 1994 and 1996, respectively.

For more information about my work, you can look at my CV.
