Currently, I am a member Institute for Digital Communications in The University of Edinburgh as a visiting researcher. I am also a Ph.D. candidate at the IMT Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca on Computer, Decision, and Systems Science. I am member of the PRIAN (Pattern recognition and Image Analysis Group) group and I work under the supervision of Prof. Sotirios Tsaftaris.

In 2016, I worked at Diagnostic Radiology Department of Yale University as a postgraduate fellow under mentorship of Prof. Xenios Papademetris.

I have got my Bachelor of Electronics Engineering degree from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey in 2010. I completed my third year of university education in Darmstadt Technical University in 2009 as an exchange student. I started M.S. program at Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of the Bahcesehir University in February 2011, and I received my Msc. degree in September 2013 under supervision of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Devrim Unay.

Research Interest

My current research focuses cardiac phase resolved Blood-Oxygen-Level-Dependent (BOLD) MR images. I work on joint registration and segmentation of the myocardium region in canine MR sequences. I conducted research on CT images of lung and heart during my master studies.
