Buse Yılmaz

I am an Assistant Professor at Department of Software Engineering, Istinye University, Turkey. I obtained my PhD from Department of Computer Science, Ozyegin University, Turkey under the supervision of Dr. Baris Aktemur. My research interests include high performance computing, program generation and autotuning. I enjoy building tools and libraries doing program analysis and profiling taking advantage of compilers such as LLVM and machine learning. Currently, I'm working on sparse solvers.
