🏆 Academic Turned Entrepreneur: Bridging Two Worlds in Harmony 🏆
My academic journey led me to complete my undergraduate education in Computer Engineering at Boğaziçi University, followed by my M.Sc. and a drop-out Ph.D at the same institution. During this transformative period, my research and contributions on internet technologies, machine learning and software engineering were recognized and published in numerous academic publications. In 2009, while I was deeply honored to be selected as ‘Most Successful Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ by JCI, it was also a year in which my academic and entrepreneurial pursuits converged, marking a significant milestone in my career.
