Data Science Research Group at Politecnico Milano

Good news, I joined to Data Science Research Group of Politecnico Milano as Research Fellow. At the moment, this is a position with a temporary contract since we need to see if I could contribute well to the research of this community. My advisor will be Marco Brambilla, who is known for his studies in Web Science and Software Engineering.

I am very pleased with becoming a member(even as a temporary researcher) of this valuable group. I believe I will gain a broad knowledge by making research with my professors and I will be able to solve a significant research problem in my Ph.D. thesis.

PhD Study in Politecnico di Milano

5 months ago, I wrote a blog post here that we have decided to move to Milan for the next 4-5 years. Finally, I am enrolled to Politecnico di Milano for the Ph.D. program in Computer Science and Engineering. It will be a great experience to join to Politecnico di Milano, which is in the 49th ranking in worldwide. As a result, I am leaving my current job at Vodafone. Actually, I really learned and applied various things in Vodafone. Thank you to my all colleagues there for their friendship.

A New Adventure, Milan – Italy

In the last 2 years, we were planning to live in a foreign country and we were trying to catch the best opportunity for both of me and my wife, and we had various alternatives including Toronto, Madrid, Berlin, and Milan. Finally, we have decided to move in Italy since the lifestyle of Italians seems very close to the Turkish people. Moreover, we speak French and it is a good opportunity to learn Italian quickly. I think there is no need to talk about how much delicious is Italian kitchen, with its pizzas, kinds of pasta and more…

As of 1st September, my wife Seda is going to begin to her Ph.D. study at Bocconi University, in Milan. Since she also had a full scholarship, it will be beneficial to cover our living expenses. On the other hand, I should leave my current job at Vodafone and seek new opportunities in Milan. Currently, I applied to Politecnico Milano for the Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and I will apply also to Milan Bicocca University. By the way, I started to learn Italian since I have a huge interest in the Italian language. I already completed one course in Italian Culture Institute, and I am now in the second course. Maybe, my next blog post could be in Italian, since in a very short time period of time, I got a great progress in Italian. And also I have started to listen to Italian songs as well, and I become happy when I understand the meaning of the lyrics…

I will continuously share my experiences from here…
