I maintain this website as a platform to disseminate my academic efforts as well as inspiring others. In addition to regular academic content, I am planning to share some ideas/comments in the form of blog posts. Read below if you are interested in learning more about my research and ways to communicate with me.

Dr. Hamdi Kavak

My name is Hamdi Kavak - an Assistant Professor at the Computational and Data Sciences department at George Mason University (GMU). I hold a Ph.D. degree and a Master’s degree in Modeling and Simulation from Old Dominion University, and a B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Karadeniz Technical University (Turkey).

My research focuses on using advancing state-of-the-art in modeling and simulation. Particularly, I contribute at the intersection of simulation modeling and data science. I also make use of data mining techniques to uncover behavioral patterns from publicly available data. In terms of application domains, I make use of cybersecurity and urban research. See my research and publications.
