Dr. Gurhan KucukAssistant Professor, Department of Computer Engineering, Yeditepe University
I got my BSc. from the department of Computer Engineering at Marmara University, Istanbul in 1995. Then, I defended my MSc. thesis focused on Mobile Networks in 1998 in Yeditepe University, Istanbul. Until my MSc. defense, I was the teaching assistant for several courses, in both Marmara and Yeditepe Universities, including Programming Languages, Compiler Design, Software Engineering and Database Design. Then, I moved to New York, USA for my PhD. study in 1999. Finally, I received my PhD. from the department of Computer Science, State University of New York at Binghamton in 2004.
My main research focus is on the field of computer architecture. Currently, I am studying performance improvements on comtemporary processor architectures, such as SMT, CMP and clustering, and on memory hierarchy by adaptive and power-aware techniques. I have also an interest in static instruction scheduling mechanisms, such as VLIW, involved in compiler research. Finally, I have research interests in Wireless Sensor Networks focused on power-aware WSN node design, localization and coverage.
Areas of Expertise: Computer Architecture, Processor Design, Power-Aware Architectures, Adaptive Architectures, Compiler Design, Wireless Sensor Networks
