About Me

I am a fifth-year PhD candidate in Computer Science at the Visual Attention Laboratory (VALab) of the University of Massachusetts Boston advised by Professor Marc Pomplun. I earned both the Master of Electrical Engineering from KNTU and the Master of Computer Science from UMass Boston .

My current research is in the areas of computer vision, machine learning and human visual perception. I am interested in scene undrestanding and object recognition, particularly using deep learning.

My previous research areas were on humen activity recognition and eye movement data analysis during reading.
