About me

I am pursuing my Ph.D. degree in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota and the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research under the supervision of Prof. Mehmet Akçakaya since August 2017.

My research interests lie in the field of signal and image processing, optimization and image reconstruction to address accelerated imaging and robust reconstruction techniques in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

I received my M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from Bilkent University, Turkey in 2017 under the supervision of Prof. Emine Ülkü Sarıtaş. I was working on Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) and its effect on magnetostimulation limits. I obtained my B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from Bilkent University, Turkey in 2015.
