I received my B.S. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Bogazici University, in Istanbul, Turkey in 2014 and my M.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2016 at the University of Maryland, in College Park, MD. Currently, I am pursuing my Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, in Atlanta, GA.

From 2015 to 2016, I was a research assistant at the Autonomous Vehicle Lab at the University of Maryland. My advisors were Timothy Horiuchi and Sean Humbert. Armed with a background in bio-inspired sensing, I began my Ph.D. work at Georgia Tech in 2016 at Inan Research Lab with Omer T. Inan. My most recent research projects are focused on physiological modulation, monitoring, and active sensing. I develop wearable tools and algorithms to study noninvasive neural and temperature modulation of human physiology with various acute stressors. 

My research has pragmatic applications in psychiatric disorders, mood and performance improvement, cardiovascular disease prevention, diagnosis, and prognosis.
