About Me

I am a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. I am working on AI for Robotics in Intelligent and Interactive Autonomous Systems Group (ILIAD), and advised by Prof. Dorsa Sadigh.


My research interests are: machine learning, artificial intelligence, and their applications for safe and interactive robotics. I am also interested in image processing and the applications of information theory.


Before coming to Stanford, I was an undergraduate student in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Bilkent University, where I had chance to work in Imaging and Computational Neuroscience Laboratory (ICON Lab) in National Magnetic Resonance Research Center under the supervision of Prof. Tolga Çukur with a focus on compressed sensing reconstructions, coil compression, and bSSFP banding suppression in MRI. I also worked on generalized approximate message passing algorithms as an intern in Prof. Rudiger Urbanke's Communication Theory Laboratory (LTHC) in EPFL, under the supervision of Dr. Jean Barbier, for a summer.


I am also a passionate table tennis player, and I enjoy chess and board games.
