I’m an applied mathematician on the Data Science team at Facebook. I am focusing on building models for inferring traits and network structures for people. Prior to Facebook, I worked as a quantitative researcher at a hedge fund. I received my PhD in Operations Research from UC Berkeley with a thesis on modeling correlated defaults for companies, M.A. in Statistics from UC Berkeley and B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research from Sabanci University, Istanbul.
