I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard Medical School and a member of the Surgical Planning Lab (SPL) and the Lab. of Mathematics in Imaging  (LMI) in Radiology Dept. of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. I obtained my PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Eng. from Northeastern University, Boston, MA where I was a member of both Biomedical Imaging and Signal Processing  Lab and Machine Learning and Pattern recognition Lab. I obtained my MS degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey and my BS degree also in Electrical and Electronics Eng. from Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara, Turkey.   

My background is in image and signal processing, pattern recognition and machine learning.

Specifically I have expertise in developing  computational models and machine learning algorithms for understanding and interpreting biomedical images.


I have worked on several medical image analysis problems including the following:


  1. Model based segmentation of of structures lacking feature contrast in CT images for radiotherapy planning.

  2. Extraction of quantitative biomarkers of cardiovascular disease from 3D CT images of thousands of smokers. 

  3. Classification and Ranking Approaches to Model Progressive Lung Disease (Emphysema) from Chest CT images

  4. Detection of 3D basal layer of skin in confocal reflectance microscopy images of skin for non invasive early cancer detection

  5. Hybrid Sequence segmentation and locally smooth classification approach to detect texture changes

  6. Modeling complex shapes  by combining local deformations and PCA based global shape models
