I am a Senior Robotics Engineer at the National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC) of the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. Prior joining to NREC, I was a post-doctoral fellow at the Computer Science Department of Carnegie Mellon University.
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Robotics Research Group which is a part of Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in the Department of Computer Engineering of Boğaziçi University under the co-supervision of Prof. H. Levent Akın from Boğaziçi University and Prof. Manuela Veloso from Carnegie Mellon University.
My long term vision is to create completely autonomous robots that work in collaboration with humans and other robots, continuously learning and updating their behaviors through interacting with and learning from humans as well as self exploration. My work is interdisciplinary, drawing from the methods and theory of artificial intelligence, robotics, and machine learning. My current research focus is on developing algorithms, representations, and interfaces for robots to learn, update, and correct their behaviors through interaction. My research interests also include developmental robotics, interactive learning, sliding autonomy through learning, mixed-initiative human-robot collaboration, human behavior understanding, data driven high fidelity robot simulation, robot vision, and multi-robot coordination and learning.
