I am a post-doctoral researcher @ Dermatology Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. I received my PhD degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey. With a background in signal and image processing, I joined Optical Imaging Group at MSKCC in December’12.
My research interests include:
- Developing machine learning methods for automated analysis
- Creating new image representations for diagnosis
- Enhancing the imaging quality through denoising and artifact cleaning
I am currently focused on developing image analysis tools for reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) and fluorescence confocal microscopy (FCM) images of skin to aid clinicians in performing image interpretation in a rapid and quantitative way to guide diagnosis. Confocal microscopy is capable of imaging skin lesions (to 100-150 um depth) in-vivo with cellular resolution comparable to that of pathology.
You can find a list of my publication below in my CV. Some of my publications can be accessed from the articles page of this website. I am also serving as an associate editor for the Signal Image and Video Processing Journal (SIVP).
