Welcome to my homepage

cropped-oguzhankulekci.jpgI am an associate professor at Istanbul Technical University, Informatics Institute. My research focuses mainly on design and engineering of algorithms for massive data management and analysis, with a particular emphasize on compressing data in a way that grants direct processing capability over compressed representations. More detailed sketch of my current research interests are summarized below according to 2012 ACM-CCS. You may check our research pages to get more informed on what we are working on, and also don't miss to have a look to the open positions to see possible opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdoctoral researchers and scientists.
