Short Bio

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Teleimmersion Lab working with Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy. I obtained my B.Sc. degrees, both in electrical & electronics engineering and computer engineering, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Koç University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2005 and 2010, respectively. I pursued my Ph.D. work in the Multimedia, Vision and Graphics Laboratory (MVGL) at Koç University under supervision of Prof. Engin Erzin, Prof. Yücel Yemez and Prof. A. Murat Tekalp. I received the Graduate Studies Excellence award in 2010 for outstanding academic achievement at Koç University.


Resaerch

My research interests span the areas of multimedia signal processing, computer vision, pattern recognition, and machine learning. My recent studies focus particularly on human body motion analysis and action recognition from 3D data. My earlier studies concentrated on multimodal dance performance analysis and music-driven dance synthesis and animation, as well as, facial expression analysis and speech-driven facial expression synthesis and animation.
