About me

I'm another software developer/consultant who loves wasting his time on reading papers and trying to reproduce them. I'm a Ph.D. candidate in computer science. Here are my publications.

My thesis research focuses on unsupervised methods of distributional semantic modeling. More generally, my research interests are: Information Retrieval Natural Language Processing Machine Learning Distributional Semantics
I'm fighting with Deep Learning models these days.

On the commercial side, I design/develop/consult web-based software products and frameworks. I manage Hostamedia's software development department. I've been teaching various software design and architecture lectures for BT Akademi and Işık University. My expertise is on maintainable, extensible and reliable software development methodologies and practices such as OOP, DDD, TDD and design patterns.

I'm agile, test infected, and somewhat object purist. I always think and talk about ways of abstracting the technological aspects away from the domain logic. I still value compiled languages/platforms more while tackling with the exponential real-world domain complexities.

Here is my CV. Check out my other profiles for further details:
Linkedin | Twitter | Medium | Quora | Google Scholar | GitHub

Please contact me if you'd consider participating in any (opensource/experimental) projects that I run.

Here are what I'm reading these days. Feel free to buy me a book from the list here ;)
