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.
