Welcome to the home page of Dr. Hamza Salih Erden.
Dr. Erden received his B.S. degree from Istanbul Technical University in Mechanical Engineering; M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Syracuse University in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He is now a faculty member at Istanbul Technical University, where he leads graduate-level teaching track and research program titled “Thermal Systems in Cloud Infrastructure” at the Informatics Institute. His current research is on the thermodynamic modeling and optimization of data center thermal environment and cooling infrastructure. As an active member of ASHRAE, ASME and IEEE, Dr. Erden authored and co-authored more than 25 journal articles and conference papers and received 2015 ASHRAE Willis H. Carrier Award.
The project titled “An Ensemble Deep Learning System for the Automatic Detection of Covid-19 in X-Ray Images” by our research group member Beltus Nkwawir Wiysobunri, who is pursuing his master’s degree in the Computer Sciences Department, was chosen the best project in the Science category of 2020 International Student Academy Awards Competition.
The project is titled “An Ensemble Deep Learning System for the Automatic Detection of Covid-19 in X-Ray Images” and conducted by Beltus under the supervision of Dr. Hamza Salih Erden and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Behçet Uğur Töreyin.
The article titled “A home energy management system with an integrated smart thermostat for demand response in smart grids” we coauthored with colleagues from the Istanbul Technical University Energy Institute, Anıl Can Duman, Ömer Gönül and Önder Güler, is now available online in the journal of Sustainable Cities and Society. It has been a fruitful example of interdisciplinary research hopefully to be continued.
Dr. Hamza Salih Erden attended Data Center Istanbul Conference on December 8th, 2020 to make an invited talk on the CFD modeling research activities for energy savings in data centers to the participants from the industry.
