Have they not seen the birds above them spreading and closing their wings? None holds them up except the Most Gracious. Quran 67:19

**About me:**
I have graduated from Simon Fraser University in 2012 after defending a PhD thesis on
Data Stream Algorithms under the supervision of
Prof. Funda Ergun. Before joining KNTU, I spent a year at Warwick University collaborating with Graham Cormode on algorithms for massive
data sets. I have also done a postdoc at MADALGO research center in Aarhus University.
