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, applied machine learning, and non-invasive wearable device design. To meet the compelling need for quantitative schemes for assessing disease or injury state, my research (i) proposes novel sensor modalities that can perform continuous and non-invasive health monitoring to provide longitudinal insights regarding a person's health, (ii) develops algorithms to extract clinically useful information from the acoustical and vibrational signals captured through these sensors, and (iii) uses this information to derive digital biomarkers for quantifying human health.
My research has been in collaboration with scientists and physicians from Emory University School of Medicine, University of California San Francisco, and Northwestern University.
I will be joining Koç University as an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in January 2021!
