Hello, my name is Bilge Demirköz. I am a faculty member at METU in Ankara, Turkey. I am originally from Istanbul, Turkey. After graduating from my high school, Robert College of Istanbul, I went to MIT and did my bachelor's in physics with minors in music and math and followed that up with master's degree in particle physics. During that time, I worked on the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer AMS project, which was installed on the International Space Station ISS in May 2011. I did my D.Phil. at Oxford University, working at CERNon ATLAS Semi-Conductor Tracker (SCT). I was a CERN Research Fellow working on the ATLAS High Level Trigger for two years and then a visitor at University of Cambridge for six months. I spent a year as a researcher with IFAE Barcelona, working on jet trigger, jet analysis with first data from the LHC! I carried the Olympic flame on July 6th, 2004 in Uskudar, Istanbul... Here is a photo and an article.
