I am an Assistant Professor of Robotics and Machine Learning in the Automation Technology and Mechanical Engineering Unit at the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Tampere University, Finland.
I obtained my B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechatronics Engineering from Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey in 2013, 2015 and 2019, respectively. Subsequently, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Sabanci University as a member of the Control, Vision and Robotics (CVR) Research Group of Sabanci University which is led by Prof. Mustafa Unel. In 2020, I joined Aalto University, Finland, where I worked for four years as a postdoctoral researcher in the Intelligent Robotics Research Group led by Prof. Ville Kyrki.
My primary research interests are safe model predictive control, constrained optimal control theory, reinforcement learning, system identification, machine learning, and their applications to dynamical systems.
