I’ve been working on Bayesian methods on machine learning under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. A. Taylan Cemgil  until 2010. Our work group is located at the Perceptual Intelligence Laboratory. I completed my Master Thesis under the supervision of  Prof. H. Levent Akın and participated at several Robocup competitions as a member of Cerberus Robocup Team.

Research Interests
