Short Bio:

Dr. Koc joined Computer Engineering Program at University of Houston - Clear Lake in Fall 2008 as Assistant Professor and is currently teaching and conducting research in the same department. After receiving his B.S. degree (ranking the best student in the department) in Electronics Engineering from Ankara University, he worked in the industry for two years. Then, he joined Syracuse University where he received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Engineering. During his graduate study, he worked on Data Recomputation Based Optimizations in Embedded Systems at The Pennsylvania State University as visiting scholar. His research is in the areas of Embedded Systems, Computer Architecture, and Multi-processors. He is the recipient of several teaching and leadership awards including UHCL Piper Award Finalist, IEEE Outstanding Student Branch Counselor Award and IEEE MGA Outstanding Small Section Award. He is currently a member of IEEE and ACM and reviewer for several journals and conferences. Followings are the links for his resume and his research lab.
