bio
I am a PhD student in the Electrical Engineering Department at UCLA, working with Suhas Diggavi. I received my B.S. degree from Bilkent University in 2011, and my M.S. degree from UCLA in 2013, both in electrical engineering. I was a visiting student at EPFL for the summers of 2010 and 2012. I was an intern at Qualcomm Corporate R&D, San Diego, CA, for the summer of 2015, and an intern at Technicolor Research, Los Altos, CA for the summer of 2016. I am broadly interested in information theory, statistics and algorithms.
