Assoc. Prof. Dr. Murat Yilmaz is interested in empirical research that focuses on applying incentive mechanisms (e.g., gamification) in software development projects. His goal is to make software engineering more manageable by using motivational models to improve essential system properties, such as productivity, efficiency, and fairness. 

In addition, he has years of training and experience in software development and design with accumulated software architecture experience. Dr. Yılmaz assisted various software development organizations by evaluating their underlying software development practices. In particular, based on his first-hand experience with agile development, he led the agile transformation process of many software development organizations. 

Dr. Yilmaz has conducted joint research with more than ten industrial partners in Turkey, such as HAVELSAN A.Ş., Kreatin Studios, Innovera, Portakal Technologies, Ideasis Inc., and Huawei Research Center in Turkey. Throughout the earlier 14 years of industrial experience, he has worked with some of the most highly innovative software development organizations, including some of Turkey’s most successful software companies, such as Gantek Technologies and Halıcı Software Company. 

Dr. Yilmaz has equipped with industrial experience covering all aspects of software development, ranging from concept evaluation to implementation and through to lifetime support and maintenance, which has been instrumental not just in quickly establishing himself as an academic researcher, but also in enabling him to lead the agile transformation effort in a role as a consultant with the Huawei Research Centre, İstanbul where he led agile transformation process, related software design, modeling and improvement activities, and conducted research for tailoring agile methodologies for multinational teams.
