Caner Kazanci


Dr. Caner Kazanci is a native of Izmir, Turkey and received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematical Sciences from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Penn. His graduate work was on mathematical biology, and was concerned with modeling biological processes and analysis of large biochemical pathways. This work is now implemented to study ecological network models. Development of a new high resolution simulation technique provides a unique opportunity to analyze higher order properties of these networks.

His current research area also includes modeling and analysis of biological system, in particular Phi-6, a small bacteriophage with only 14 genes. He has also developed EcoNet and online ecological modeling and simulation software.
