Hello there!

I'm a Robotics Researcher, Postdoctoral Fellow focusing on Inertial Localization for Planetary Rovers and Cooperative Localization for multi-robot systems with the Navigation Laboratory at West Virginia University.

I have a strong passion for space and robotics. This led me to study from CubeSats to planetary rovers throughout my education. After my Ph.D. study on inertial localization techniques for space robotics missions, I was involved in working on UAVs, and I am currently working on cooperative localization for multi-robot systems.

I got involved in many exciting projects, which included leading the first Turkish CanSat microsatellite team that won the MERIT award, working on the von Karman Institute’s QB50 mission, studying at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory for Mars Rovers.
