Welcome to my webpage !




My name is Gürkan Solmaz. I work as a Senior Researcher at NEC Labs Europe (Germany). Previously, I received my Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer Science from the Department of EECS of University of Central Florida (UCF), USA and B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Middle East Technical University (METU), Turkey.

I am interested in mobile computing, AI/machine learning, and edge computing for novel internet of things (IoT) applications to smart cities and smart mobility. The current list of publications can been seen in the publications page.


During my Ph.D., I was under supervision of Dr. Damla Turgut at Networking and Mobile Computing Lab. My research interests included wireless ad hoc and sensor networks and human mobility models. Detailed information can be found in the research page.

I am a member of IEEE, ACM, IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), ACM SIGMOBILE, and the ACM Future of Computing Academy (FCA).
