I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Pittsburgh. I am currently doing research with Malihe Alikhani. I have a Master's degree from Computational Biology Department in School of Computer Science and Mellon College of Science of Carnegie Mellon University. I did research with Prof. Tai-Sing Lee. My Bachelor's degree in Computer Science is from Bilkent University, Turkey.

My research interests are mainly computational neuroscience, deep learning, bio-inspired algorithms and linguistics. I enjoy applying DL architectures such as RBMs, GANs and AEs to computational biology and computational linguistics problems.
