After Alkan Lab
Meryem Banu Cavlak is still a member of Alkan Lab in her heart and her spirit still wanders around the EA building. More formally though, she is an M.Sc. student in the SAFARI Research Group at ETH Zurich, advised by Prof. Onur Mutlu. Her current research interests span everything including bioinformatics and computer architecture.
