Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University


I am third-year PhD Student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, under the supervision of Prof. John Pauly. I also work closely with Prof. Kawin Setsompop, Prof. Shreyas Vasanawala, and Prof. Akshay Chaudhari. Before joining Stanford, I received my MSc and BSc degrees from Electrical Engineering at Bilkent University in Turkiye, where I worked with Prof. Tolga Cukur. My research focuses on synergistic combination of computer vision and medical imaging to advance healthcare technologies by developing novel deep learning models for accelerated multi-contrast MRI synthesis, reconstruction and super-resolution as well as for the foremost computer vision problems utilizing supervised and unsupervised learning techniques.

I am also a passionate chess player (please reach me for a series of blitz games). I also enjoy playing basketball, tennis, and board games.
