I like technology, system-design, communications, and programming, and I'm good at it. I have a skill set that's best described "jack of all trades, master of none, still better than one". I learn fast, adapt fast and deliver efficiently.
During my BSc, I actually delievered 4 separate senior projects, 2 from electronics engineering and 2 from industrial engineering. The first project was my own senior project.
-Computer-vision based automotive side-mirror adjustment system (software design & implementation),
-VHDL transceiver design for underwater communications (hardware coding),
-City refuse collection system optimization (algorithm development & implementation),
-Automotive spare-parts distribution schedule optimization (algorithm development & implementation).
After that I did freelance application development with C/C++ and Java. Also worked on projects related to embedded sensory applications (embedded software and circuit/PCB design).
Did an MSc. and focused on embedded software. I've done my thesis project on creating an infrastructure to carry data for low-cost, low-power, long-range communications with amateur radio bands (optimized IP stack implementation that uses off-the-shelf amateur band modules and PCB design).
I have co-founded a tech company with government funds that works on swarm AI technologies for unmanned vehicles. We also dealt with web/mobile application projects as side-projects for income.
I also now have a PhD (which I got full scholarship and stipend for)
and worked with MIMO radars and sonars for automotive radar applications involving array optimisation and short-range sensing. I then worked as a postdoc research-fellow at MISL of University of Birmingham. My main subjects were spaceborne, synthetic aperture, passive, MTI and MIMO radars (and their combinations).
I've then taken a position at Novit.AI where I implement WSNs, and doing radar and image post-processing and using AI to fuse data to deliver insights to businesses. There, I've developed, from scratch, an AI pipeline that would generate reports based on periodic influx of satellite-imagery
. My final project was an automated temperature measurement kiosk
since we were in the middle of a pandemic...
Oh, while doing that I also taught Digital Design and Embedded Systems modules at Bilkent University Computer Science Dept. for about 3 years and 1 term in Middle East Technical University's Computer Engineering Dept.
Thanks to the rise of normalisation of remote work during pandemic, I then started working as a remote firmware engineer with Dekunu Tech (based in NSW, Australia), a company that produces smart-altimeters for sport skydivers.
Towards the end of the pandemic, I decided it's time move again and started working as a firmware engineer at Xilinx (now AMD)
in Cambridge, UK. We're producing network accelerator cards
Though I couldn't keep myself too far away from university so I also had the chance to work as a supervisor for Concurrent & Distributed Systems and Computer Networks
modules for Robinson College of Cambridge University.
As a work-task turned into hobby, I'm also porting Zephyr RTOS
to Microblaze processor nowadays...
