Hi! I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, under the supervision of Prof. Shivendra Panwar. I received my B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, in 2013; and my M.S. degree from the same department in 2016, under the supervision of Prof. Nail Akar.

My research interests include design and analysis of low-latency future cellular networks. I have worked on the analysis of blockage-prone millimeter wave (mmWave) communications for vehicular networks. Most recently, I have been investigating applications of deep learning in 5G networks to improve handover and beam management performance.

I have spent three summers (2017, 2018 and 2019) collaborating with Futurewei Technologies, where we have investigated machine learning-based methods for improving the performance of link adaptation and carrier aggregation in LTE and 5G NR. I have also collaborated with Samsung Research America (SRA) during the Summer of 2020 on electric and magnetic fields (EMF)-based power control methods for 5G NR.
