I received my B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering at Bilkent University, Turkey. Then, I was
UC Berkeley between
Fall 1998 and Spring 2004. I
earned my M.A. and Ph.D. in Biostatistics under
supervision of Mark J. van der Laan in May 2000 and
As my Ph.D. work,
I worked on the estimation of the bivariate
with general right censored data structures,
developed statistical methods for detecting regulatory motifs (transcription
factor binding sites)
in biological sequences.
Between August 2003 and August 2004, I was a postdoctoral fellow in
Division of Biostatistics with
the Graduate Group
in Computational and Genomic Biology under the
of Mark J.
van der Laan and Sandrine
Dudoit. My postdoctoral work involved
statistical methods and software for ChIP-Chip data.
