Mr Ercan Ezin

Computer Science(PhD)

Hello visitor, My main research area is investigating context-aware recommender systems in tourism and leisure planning in Smart Cities.

Digital devices have always been my toys since my childhood. Whenever I saw a problem with them, I spent hours to find a solution. This motivated me to become a Software Engineer to tackle up-to-date problems in both industry and academia. I worked for 3 years in the industry and now pursuing a career in academia.

My educational background includes two bachelor degrees(Computer Education and Instructional Technologies, a double major in Software Engineering) at the Bahçeşehir University, in Turkey. I spent 6 months at EPITA , Paris as an exchange student. Finally, I received an MSc in Adv Computer Science at the University of Essex before I started my PhD.
