I grew up in Istanbul, Turkey, and attended high school at Robert College. I graduated from there in 2001 and went on to get my BA at Cornell University, completing a double major in Computer Science and Computational Biology. I was a graduate student at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra from 2005 to 2010, and defended my thesis, entitled "Heuristics for Planning with Action Costs" in December 2010. Since January 2011, I've been a postdoc at the MAIA group at INRIA Nancy.
