After graduating from Sabancı University Microelectronics Engineering Program and completing her doctorate at the University of California, San Diego, Ayşe Kıvılcım Coşkun became a faculty member at Boston University Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. Being a Network Faculty Member of Sabancı University Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences at the same time, Coşkun will replace Professor of Engineering Yannis Paschalidis who has become the new director of the Hariri Institute.

“I’m excited to take on this opportunity,” says Coşkun. “If you think about a research center, it’s really a catalyst, bringing together people with different expertise to build something bigger. My goal in my new role at CISE is to continue this center’s strong tradition of collaborative research around the topic of intelligent systems, while fostering growth in the broader area of computer systems, and to make sure we have a coherent, unified center where all these different researchers are supported well and can interact and collaborate.”
