Taha is a third-year PhD student registered at the University of Edinburgh working under the supervision of Chris Williams. He received his BSc (2015) and MSc (2017) at the Bogazici University. His research interests include Bayesian inference in probabilistic graphical models with the applications for data analytics.
In data analytics projects, a significant amount of time and effort is spent on data wrangling, where the goal is to transform a raw dataset into a clean/standard format so that it can be used with statistical models. Hence, it is crucial to develop systems that can help users through various stages of this process. Taha's studies focus on developing machine learning methods to semi-automate such data normalization tasks.
