About Me

I am currently a PhD candidate in Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics, Istanbul Technical University. My active research interests include, but not limited to semantic role labeling, relation extraction, machine translation and NLP applications of deep learning. I collaborate with PragmaCraft to apply deep learning to various NLP problems.

Prior to my PhD studies, I worked for Siemens Corporate Technology (CT) R&D Department for about 3 years as a software developer, mostly for industrial automation projects. I was interviewed by Siemens World Magazine as part of the news on the foundation of R&D department in Turkey.

I received my MSc. degree from Electronics Engineering Program at Sabanci University, Istanbul and my BS degree from Istanbul Technical University Computer Science Department. During my Masters, I was involved in Tübitak Project entitled: Assessment of Fluid Tissue Interaction Using Multi-Modal Image Fusion for Characterization and Progression of Coronary Atherosclerosis under supervision of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Gözde Ünal and also a teaching assistant for Computer Vision and Data Structures courses offered in Sabanci University, Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences.
