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, digital biomarkers and applied machine learning . My research projects received mainstream media coverage in the United States, including CNN and Fox; and have led to several publications in major engineering venues and leading medical conferences.
I am the Director of the Physiological Analysis and Wearable Systems Research Lab at Koc University. If you want to learn more about our research group and projects, please visit our lab website.
