About Me

I work as a senior research scientist at Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence (BCAI). I have received my Ph.D. from  Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, under the supervision of Prof. Mehmet Akçakaya. I have received a B.Sc. in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey, in 2016. 
My research  interest includes computer vision, self-supervised learning, zero-shot learning, medical imaging, and autonomous driving .
