I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electical and Electronics Engineering from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey) in 2012 and 2015, respectively. During my Master studies, for the first 1,5 years, I collaborated with Turkish defense company Havelsan and  worked as a part-time researcher in a remote sensing project entitled HASAT, where I was working on image segmentation and pattern recognition problems. I spent 2014 summer in LTS4 as a summer intern. In March 2015, I started working as a part-time researcher in METU Center for Image Analysis in a deep learning project and I applied deep learning algorithms to visual object tracking problem. In September 2015, I started my Ph.D. in the same department and quitted after my first year. During my master and doctoral studies in METU, I worked as a research and teaching assistant for 4 years, until August 2016.

I started my doctoral studies at EPFL in September 2016, as an EDIC fellowship student, and joined LTS4 in February 2017, where I work towards my thesis under the supervision of Prof. Pascal Frossard.

My research interests are in the areas of time series prediction, recurrent neural networks and Bayesian inference.
