Brief Bio

I am one of seven billion persons waiting to pass the door of eternal life into the afterworld. While waiting, I married a wonderful woman, Fatma, have a son, Esat, and a daughter, Elif. I am also pursuing my academic career as a faculty member at Marshall University , where I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Sciences and Electrical Engineering of the College of Engineering and Computer Sciences.

During my postdoctoral studies, I worked with Dr. Haiying (Helen) Shen , who was my supervisor at the College of Engineering and Science, Clemson University. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics at Abant Izzet Baysal University in Turkey, and Master of Computer Science at The University of Texas at San Antonio. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at The University of Oklahoma, and my advisor is Dr. Mohammed Atiquzzaman . I also worked with Dr. Turgay Korkmaz during my master. (Please see my CV for details about my education and experiences).

K-12 Summer Camp

The Purpose of the Computer Science Adventure Zone camp (CS A-Z) is to promote interest in computer science and to help K-12 students understand how computers work and how they help our everyday lives. Students will also learn how to solve problems with computing and programming. The CS A-Z camp will provide fun-filled, hands-on activities that students will enjoy while learning the science behind computing. Click for more info .

Teacher Camp


Adventure Zone Teacher Academy includes a one-week summer camp that will assist teachers in developing and integrating cybersecurity and computer science subjects into their courses at their home schools. Camp participants will engage in hands-on explorations of the many aspects of security, including ethics, networks, phishing, social engineering, and robotics system. Camp participants will also develop lesson plans for delivering cybersecurity and computer science content in K-12 curricula. Click for more info .

Student Research

I have worked/been working with a number of graduate and undergraduate students for research projects. Some of their projects were supported by NASA, Marshall University, and WV State. Due to their excellent works, some of them have published their works in journals, conferences, and symposiums. Some of them also had opportunities to attend conferences. Please click on the image to see the related gallery.

K-12 Events


I have been working to improve computer science, robotics, and cybersecurity awareness among K-12 schools in the region and raising awareness of the University's role in computer science and cybersecurity education. Therefore, I have been organizing summer camps and given numerous presentations to local schools near Marshall University, that introduce computer science. Moreover, I have arranged and attended a number of programs such as Engineering Day, STEAM Family Night, ACT Workshop, Code and Cybersecurity Summit, Congressional App Challenge Competition, Green and White Days, etc. Each of the programs has a number of hands-on activities for students. Please click on the image to see the related gallery.

VEX Robotics Competitions

I am supervising Community Service Leadership Program to help local schools, such as St. Joseph, to support them for their Robotic Club activities. Moreover, I am the faculty advisor of Geeks and Gadgets Student Club organizes many events such as Annual Marshall University VEX IQ Challenge Competition which hosts more than 10 schools and 200 guests each year. Please click on the image to see the related gallery.

Volunteers for K-12 Events


Due to many K-12 events, many undergraduate and graduate students have been working with me for those outreach activities. Although some students get paid for their work, many of them are volunteers. I appreciate their hard works and willingness to organize such exemplary activities. Thank you all. Please click on images to see the related gallery.

Classrooms

I am familiar with Bloom’s Taxonomy, which states that the lowest level of thinking is memorization, and the highest level of thinking is creation. My ultimate aim is taking students to the highest level of thinking by improving their critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. My other important teaching strategy is how to keep students interested in, and to stress that it is challenging but crucial to be able to reach their goal. Therefore, I use the several strategies such as Motivating the students about the lectures, subjects, and labs; Providing positive feedback to the students in the classroom environment; Privately providing corrective feedback to the students when needed; etc. Please click on images to see the related gallery.
