About Me

I am a PhD student of Auke Ijspeert at EPFL. I am affiliated in  Robotics, Control, and Intelligent Systems (EDRS) program and work at Biorobotics Laboratory. My current research mainly focuses on self-reconfigurable modular robots (SRMR), dynamic locomotion and computer vision applications.  I mainly work on the Roombots project (SRMR made in BioRob) and offer my help wherever I am needed. I am responsible for a portion of electronics design in Biorob.

I had BSc (2011) and MSc (2014)  degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the Middle East Technical University (METU). I had control and programming oriented elective courses during BSc and robotics option during the MSc. Additionally, I completed the minor degree in Mechatronics during BSc. That was the most robotics oriented path available in METU. Robotics started as a hobby for me in BSc and gradually became part of my professional life.

I am a motorcycle enthusiast and always actively looking for companions to ride with.

I love rowing as a team. I am a casual rower who enjoys floating on water and gorgeous scenes. It helps to get over a busy work day.

As part of living in Switzerland, I happily fulfill my hiking and skiing duties.
