Biography

I work as an Assistant Professor at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands, in the Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3) Section. I received my B.Sc. degree with a double specialization in Communications and Microwaves/Antennas from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey, in 2014, and the M.Sc. (Cum Laude, with the Justus & Louise van Effen Scholarship) and Ph.D. degrees (Cum Laude) in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 2016 and 2020, respectively. Following my Postdoctoral Research at TU Delft, I started working in my current role. My research interests include phased arrays for next-generation communication and sensing systems, array optimization, cooling, multibeam antennas, front-end architectures, and beamforming algorithms.
