Hello there!

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

I have always had a deep fascination with space and robotics, which has driven my academic pursuits. From CubeSats to planetary rovers, my education has covered a wide range of topics. After completing my Ph.D. in 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. 

Throughout my career, I have been fortunate enough to work on some amazing projects. Notably, I led the first Turkish CanSat microsatellite team that won the MERIT award and was involved in the von Karman Institute’s QB50 mission. I also had the privilege of studying at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory for Mars Rovers, which was an incredible experience.
