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.
