BIO

I am currently a data integrity and analysis consultant working with companies in pharmaceutical and entertainment industries. I hold a Ph.D. from University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a M.Sc. degree from Istanbul Technical University.

I started out as a theoretical physicist, working on classic problems of statistical mechanics such as Phase Transitions and Renormalization Group Theory. Then I became a computational physicist to study Spin Glasses by designing and running the large-scale simulations necessary to understand these systems and dealing with generated data. Later, during my tenure as Research Scientist at Northeastern University, I applied those skills to real-world data, trying to understand the society we live in and what it takes to become successful in today's constantly changing, highly interconnected world. My research was focused on the dynamics of success as performance, productivity, recognition and popularity. 

Right now, my mission is to help companies collect and utilize data in the most efficient way in order to maximize their impact. To do that, I focus on advising data teams to collect the most informative and insightful data, cross-examine it for biases and inconsistencies, statistically analyze it to its full extent and create models and/or machine learning solutions to reach the most accurate predictions.

I believe good communication is a key component in a company's success. As such I position myself as the translator between the data and management teams, often advising about product management as we together uncover likeliest and alternative paths to commercial achievement.
