Sait Celebi


I am Sait, a PhD student at Computer Science Department of Purdue University under the supervision of Prof. Jennifer Neville. My research interests include Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Social Network Analysis. I like writing all types of code that a machine could, possibly, understand.

You can find my resume here.
