Kerim Gökarslan - Short Bio

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Yale University under the advisory of Professor Y. Richard Yang. My research interests include Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Cloud Computing, Distributed Systems, Network Verification and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).

Before joining Yale, I worked as a software engineering intern at Cisco Systems in San Jose, California. I received B.S. in Computer Engineering (second-highest-ranked) and B.S. in Mathematics from Bogazici University in 2017 with High Honors. I was a fellow of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) during college. I also worked part-time at Netas during my senior year at Bogazici as a software engineer.
