I am a Senior Data Analytics Associate and Data Science Instructor at Ryerson University. My research interests include statistical machine learning, data mining and deep learning. 


I am teaching Data Analytics courses in the "Data Analytics, Big Data, and Predictive Analytics Certificate Program" and "Data Science and Analytics, Masters Program."


I supervise students in their Data Analytics Capstone Projects and I am the second reader of all the M.Sc. Data Science Major Research Projects. I am also an associate member of the Yeates School of Graduate Studies, Ryerson University. 


Since receiving my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Istanbul Technical University, I have worked as an Assistant Professor for five years and then, as an Associate Professor for two years in the Department of Mathematics.


Five years ago, inspired after visiting the Data Science Laboratory, Ryerson, where I learned the practical applications of data analytics and how it involved mathematics (my specialty), I shifted my focus to data. My current research is focused on numerical analysis, data mining, and machine learning programming. As a senior researcher in the Data Science Lab, I have led projects with industrial partners such as Globe and Mail, Manulife, St. Mike’s Hospital and Toronto Police Services.


Here is a link to my list of publications and you can find more about my research profile here.


As a subject matter expert on Data Analytics, I have prepared video lectures and online course material for the courses CIND 123 Data Analytics: Basic Methods and CMTH 642 Data Analytics: Advanced Methods for Chang School of Continuing Education. These video lectures that are currently used in Data Analytics, Big Data, and Predictive Analytics Certificate Program at Chang School, Ryerson University have served thousands of students.
