About Me

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in Electrical engineering and Computer Science at the University of Minnesota, working with 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 machine learning, magnetic resonance imaging and tensor decompositions.
