I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Informatics and lead the Gemini IoT Center at the University of Oslo. I am also the Head of Mobile Systems and Analytics (MOSAIC) Department at Simula Metropolitan. I received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Middle East Technical University, Turkey, and Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Tandon School of Engineering at New York University.
My research interests lie in the areas of mobile networks including 5G and B5G, Internet of Things, low latency networking, multipath protocols and robust multimedia transmission over wireless networks. In the last five years, I have led the effort to build MONROE, the first European open access and flexible hardware-based platform for measurements and custom experimentation on operational Mobile Broadband (MBB) networks. Currently, I am involved in building a 5G testbed through 5GENESIS project to test novel applications and technologies for 5G and beyond networks.
