My research interests revolve around machine learning, natural language processing and textual content analysis. I investigate (semi) automated methods and tools for fact checking and content verification to foster trustworthy news. This research focuses on computational text analysis to assist journalist during the editorial procedure and news production.

Before, I was an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Engineering, Final International University, North Cyprus. I hold a PhD in Computer Engineering (Machine Learning) from Eastern Mediterranean University, North Cyprus and a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran.
