I received my PhD in Mining Engineering from Hacettepe University in 2013 with a thesis entitled “Resource Estimation by Using Covariance Matching Constrained Kriging”. During doctorate, I have completed Post Graduate Programme, CFSG (Cycle de Formation Spécialisée en Géostatistique) in École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris, Fontainebleau, France. My scholarly focus on geostatistics and mine design has led to several publications and industrial projects. My memberships include the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences (IAMG), Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME), and Chamber of Mining Engineers of Turkey. Given courses in curriculum are MAD 213 Basic Statistics, MAD 256 Surveying, MAD 345 Mining II, and MDN 722 Multivariate Geostatistics.

I have competed in the Turkish Masters’ Swimming League, National Biathle Championships, and completed several open water marathons, including Samsung Bosphorus Cross-Continental Swimming Race (3 times), and Gallipoli 1915 Memorial Swim in the ANZAC Cove.

Research Interests: Focused on seminal methods in geostatistical estimation and classification with tailor-made algorithms compiled mostly in MATLAB. Application of machine learning, pattern recognition, and classification algorithms to geological domaining and mineral resource classification. Numerical modeling in underground openings.
