I completed my PhD degree in Computer Engineering at Boğaziçi University, and my advisor was Prof. Pınar Yolum. My PhD research is based on ontology-based privacy management in Online Social Networks. In one direction, I have proposed an efficient algorithm to detect privacy violations in Online Social Networks. In another direction, we have used agreement technologies (argumentation and negotiation) so that agents can negotiate on privacy concerns of their users before sharing some content. Prior to taking up my post, I was a Research Associate at King’s College London. My project is CONSULT (Collaborative Mobile Decision Support for Managing Multiple Morbidities). I will continue contributing to this project where I am developing an argumentation-based decision-support mechanism.

There is one fully-funded PhD position to work with me on my project called “Preserving Privacy in an Online World”. More details about this position can be found online on School page.
