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, IEEE Computer Society, ALP, ASL and AAL
