I am an Electronics Engineer who is currently doing a PhD in University of Birmingham in United Kingdom. I have recently completed my master's studies in the System-on-Chip Design field in KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. Before that, I finished my bachelor studies in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey. Between the MSc. graduation and PhD. Studies I have also started and closed a small tech start-up which I dealt with Swarm AI systems for unmanned vehicles.

Current Projects

Development of Signal Processing Algorithms for Novel MIMO Automative Radar Array

The Ph.D study involves the development of signal processing algorithms for a novel Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) automotive radar array. Such an array may drastically improve the current angular resolution of traditional automotive radars, and therefore provide enhanced performance for a number of applications, such as obstacle detection and automatic parking. During the course of the project, optimal signal processing algorithms for the above applications will be built and tested. At the end of the study, experimental proof of concept of the proposed technology will be provided along with the appropriate performance metrics.
