I am a Research Associate within the Data-Centric Engineering programme at The Alan Turing Institute, working with Prof. Mark Girolami as a part of the CoSInES project. I am also a part of the Computational Statistics and Machine Learning Group (CSML) at the University of Cambridge. Previously, I was a Research Fellow of the University of Warwick, with a joint appointment between Dept. of Computer Science and Dept. of Statistics, based at The Turing, working with Theo Damoulas as a member of the Warwick Machine Learning Group. I completed my PhD under the supervision of Joaquin Miguez within the Signal Processing Group at Carlos III University of Madrid. Before that, I got my engineering degrees from Istanbul Tech focusing on signal processing.

My research interests revolve around computational statistics, machine learning, and signal processing. More specifically, I am interested in stochastic optimization, Markov chain Monte Carlo, sequential Monte Carlo and their applications in these fields.

Here is my usually up-to-date CV. See works page for preprints, papers, slides, posters, and other things related to my work. I maintain a research blog called almost stochastic for short notes which might be of interest to other people.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you would like to work together.

Here are some more links: My Google Scholar, github, LinkedIn, a few Amazon book reviews (Amazon US and Amazon UK) (hopefully there will be more soon), and my Medium page.
