You have reached my academic website. Welcome!
I have obtained my PhD in Programming Languages at MPI-SWS (Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, Saarbrücken, Germany) and Saarland University in January 2018. I was advised by Deepak Garg.
I am currently a Software Engineer at Facebook’s Static Analysis team, Infer. Nowadays, I am working on a static analysis tool for detecting performance regressions at diff time.
- type systems with an emphasis on refinements, dependent types, and resource usage
- incremental computation
- relational reasoning
- bidirectional programming.
I graduated from Bilkent University’s Computer Engineering Department in 2011.

The last unpublished part of my PhD is finally accepted to PLDI’19!
I am done with my PhD!
I am invited to the Dagstuhl Seminar on “Resource Bound Analysis“.
I have attended to the NII Schonan Meeting on “Semantics of Effects, Resources and Applications” in Shonan Village near Tokyo, Japan.
I have attended the Dagstuhl Seminar on “Programming Language Techniques for Incremental and Reactive Computing“.
I recently completed a research internship on bidirectional graph transformations at National Institute of Informatics (NII) in Tokyo, Japan. I worked on a proof system for guaranteeing free-edits to bidirectional graph transformations with Asst. Prof. Soichiro Hidaka at Programming Research Lab.
