Neriman is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Biomedical & Clinical Informatics Lab. She earned her PhD in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2017, under the supervision of Prof. Bruce Reznick. Neriman received a MS in Mathematics, also from UIUC, and a BS in Mathematics from Cukurova University, Turkey.

Her research interests include real algebraic geometry, field theory and polynomials, semidefinite optimization, combinatorics and graph theory. In particular, she has been working on symmetric tensor decomposition – also known as the Waring problem for forms, sum of squares optimization, Schubert calculus, and graph matching.
