About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Koc University. I received my Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2020 and 2018, respectively. I am a Fulbright Scholarship recipient. Prior to Georgia Institute of Technology, I received my B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Koc University in 2016, and my high school degree from Robert College in 2012.

My research interests include biomedical signal processing, wearable device design, physiological monitoring systems, acoustic analysis, digital biomarkers, artificial intelligence for healthcare, applied machine learning and data science.

This year’s Stanford CS Bridge Program will take place between 2 – 19 August. Happy to be part of the team!

June 3, 2021 : I am happy to share that I received the National Young Researchers Career Development Grant (Tübitak-ARDEB 3501) with the proposal entitled ‘PhysioPatch: A Wearable Device for Non-Invasive and Continuous Cardiovascular and Cardiopulmonary Monitoring’. We will be working on designing an adaptable wearable system to allow continuous health monitoring outside the physical confines of the clinic. Stay tuned!

May 8, 2021 :  I gave a talk on wearable devices and AI in healthcare at BIOMEDTALKS’21 organized by İzmir University of Economics (Original Talk Title (in TR): Sağlıkta Giyilebilir Cihazlar ve Yapay Zeka).

Mar 21, 2021 : I gave the opening speech of this year’s Girls Who Code (GWC) event.

Jan 13, 2021 :  I am happy to share that I received the IEEE Technical Committee on Computational Life Sciences (TCCLS) 2020 PhD Thesis Award with my thesis ‘Digital Biomarker Discovery for Non-Invasive Health Monitoring with Acoustic and Vibration Signals’.
