|Hi! Welcome to my website. I am a Professor in the
Department of Computing, Division of
Information and Communication Sciences, Macquarie
University, Sydney, NSW, Australia. I am the
co-founder of the Intelligent Systems Group at Macquarie.
See the Projects link for information on
current and past projects and the Research Grants page for available funding.
If you are interested in research, please contact me.
I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer
Science and Engineering from Hacettepe
University, Ankara, Turkey,
and Ph.D.(1991) in Computer Science from
The University of Victoria (UVic) , Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
The topic of my PhD thesis was "Intensional Logic Programming". My thesis
advisor was Prof. Bill Wadge,
co-inventor of the Lucid language.
Prior to joining Macquarie University as a Lecturer in September 1992, I worked
as a post-doctoral research associate at UVic in the
Rigi project on software reverse engineering and analysis, initiated by
Professor Hausi A. Muller in the mid-eighties. My current research
interests lie in the areas of computational intelligence, multi-agent systems, trust and security, temporal reasoning, formal methods. I am a Senior Member of
IEEE, and member of ACM,
