Ercument received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science and Engineering at Sabanci University. He earned his Ph.D. in Computing and Information Sciences from Case Western Reserve University in 2013. During his Ph.D. training, he worked on algorithms to detect signatures in omics data for complex diseases using information theory and biochemical networks. He also worked on design and development of online systems and online biological databases such as PathCase. After working mainly on the metabolome and the transcriptome, currently, he is interested in developing methods to analyze the genome to understand the mechanisms of genomic perturbations leading to disease.
