Brief Biography

I received my B.Sc. (1993) and M.Sc. (1995) in Computer Engineering, Bogazici University, Turkey and my Ph.D. (2004), Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Intelligent Autonomous Systems Lab. at University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands and the Signal Processing and Communications Lab., Dept. of Engineering, University of Cambridge, UK. Currently, I am an Assoc. Prof. at Bogazici University, Dept. of Computer Engineering. I am a member of the PI Lab.


  1. I will teach at Nesin Math. Village, Sirince, 9 Oct 2015 a tutorial on tensors for Machine Learning. http://www.emo.org.tr/etkinlikler/akademikkamp/


  1. Umut Simsekli has successfully defended his PhD thesis: Tensor Fusion: Learning In Heterogeneous And Distributed Data

  2. Some people have asked the updated slides for the Tensor Factorization tutorial at the LVA/ICA 2015. Here are the slides for part II
