Bio

I am currently an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) in RealVision project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 765911.

I have completed my undergraduate studies with a degree title of Bachelor of Engineering with a major in Electronics and a score of 85% (3.76 CGPA out of 4). My final year project “FPGA based Face Recognition System”, ICT R&D funded, broadened my concepts of image processing, digital development, and designing technique. I pursued my Master in Image processing and Deep learning from Istanbul Medipol University under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Bahadir K. Gunturk and graduated in May 2018. Currently, I am a pursuing Ph.D. research at Fraunhofer IIS under Dr. Ing. Joachim Keinert, working as a research associate in the Computational Imaging and Algorithms group.
