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, applied machine learning and data science.

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.

Sep 30, 2021 : Our paper “Automatic Subject Identification Using Scale-Based Ballistocardiogram Signals” has been accepted to EAI MobiHealth2021!

Sep 27, 2021 : I am offering a new course this semester! ELEC 447/547: Biomedical Signal Processing.

This year’s Stanford CS Bridge Program took 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!
