Background and activities

I'm a PhD candidate (started mid-2013) at the Computer Architecture and Design (CARD) group, under the supervision of Magnus Jahre. Between Feb - Jul 2016 I will be on leave from NTNU at Xilinx Research Labs Ireland.


  • PhD (Computer Architecture), NTNU, 2013 - present
  • MSc (European Master in Embedded Computing Systems), NTNU (Norway) and University of Southampton (UK), 2011 - 2013
  • BSc (Computer Engineering), Middle East Technical University (Turkey), 2006 - 2011


My academic interests are heterogeneous architectures, energy efficiency via application- or domain-specific accelerators. My current research focus is accelerating irregular applications using reconfigurable logic to achieve high performance and energy efficiency. I also work with the SHMAC (Single-ISA Heterogeneous Manycore Computer) project as part of the EECS (Energy Efficient Computing Systems) strategic research area.

I am also interested in ease-of-programmability for heterogeneous architectures, programming models an abstractions for accelerating algorithms, system software and energy-efficient embedded systems.
