I received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Koc University, Istanbul. I joined the department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) as a postdoctoral researcher in 2006 and later as a faculty member in 2008. I am currently an associate professor of intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) systems at the Interconnected Resource-aware Intelligent Systems (IRIS) research cluster of TU/e Computer Science. My research is on the architectures and life-cycle management for resource-constrained smart spaces and intelligent Internet of Things (IoT), including the relevant data analytics aspects.
Since 2013, I am leading the Bright Environments research program of TU/e Intelligent Lighting Institute.
