Hi! I am a 6G Researcher at Turkcell 6GEN Lab, İstanbul, Türkiye, where I explore cutting-edge communication technologies and services for 6G networks, such as Network Digital Twins, AI-native architectures and quantum communications. Before joining Turkcell, I had worked at AT&T Labs Research, Bedminster, NJ, as a Senior Inventive Scientist for two years. I have spent three summers (2017, 2018 and 2019) working as an intern at 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 worked at Samsung Research America (SRA) during the Summer of 2020 on electric and magnetic fields (EMF)-based power control methods for 5G NR. As of March 2024, I joined the Editorial Board of IEEE Wireless Communications Letters as an Associate Editor.

I received my Ph.D. degree in February 2022, from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, under the supervision of Prof. Shivendra Panwar. My Ph.D. research focused on the design and analysis of low-latency future cellular networks. I mainly focused on the analysis of blockage-prone millimeter-wave (mmWave) links to provide high-data rate and low-latency mobile access. 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.
