Biographical Sketch

Mehmet is a former computer engineer in the Scientific Data Management Group, currently an affiliate with the Scientific Networking Division. His recent work particularly deals with performance problems in high-bandwidth networks, efficient data transfer mechanisms and data streaming, high-performance network protocols, bandwidth reservations, virtual circuits, and data transfer scheduling for large-scale applications.  He received his doctoral degree in computer science from Louisiana State University (LSU) in 2010. He has several years of industrial experience as system administrator and R&D specialist, at various software companies before joining LSU. He also worked as a summer intern in Los Alamos National Laboratory. During his study at LSU, he worked as a teaching assistant in the Department of Computer Science, and as a research assistant in the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT).
