Short Biography

I was born and raised in Kayseri, Turkey. I received my undergrad degrees in Mechatronics Engineering from both Kocaeli University (Kocaeli Turkey) and Hochschule Bochum (Bochum, Germany).

Upon graduation, I was awarded with a full scholarship by the Turkish Ministry of National Education. I chose to pursue my masters and PhD education in United States and moved to Pittsburgh, PA in April 2009. After taking English classes for seven months, I was accepted to the masters degree program of Carnegie Mellon University.
