About Me

I am currently a faculty member at the Department of Computer Engineering, Hacettepe University and the head of the WISE Lab. My journey in academia started when I completed my PhD in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York, UK, after which I joined Hacettepe University as a lecturer in October 2010. I was appointed Associate Professor of Computer Science in 2015, followed by my promotion to Professor of Computer Science in 2022. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to conduct research visits to prestigious institutions, including Eurecom Institute in France in 2011 and the University of York, UK in 2016. Currently, I am pursuing my studies as a research visitor at the Cyber Security and Privacy Research Group at York.


My research interests are centered around the development of intelligent secure systems. In particular, I am highly engaged in researching intrusion detection, trust management and malware analysis. My work also extends to wireless networks and IoT, where I concentrate on enhancing routing protocols and strengthening the security of these networks. Furthermore, I am interested in nature-inspired algorithms and evolutionary computation, and their application to solve hard problems in networking and security. Throughout the years, I have been actively investigating the implementation of artificial intelligence-based approaches to tackle challenging problems in the fields of networking and security.
