Work phone:

I am a Ph.D. student in the Neurotechnology Group at the Institute of Neuroinformatics (INI) at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Prof. Mehmet Fatih Yanik. I have obtained my Master degree from Yildiz Technical University in Mechatronics Engineering program. During my Master degree, I worked on a holographic single-cell imaging technique for measuring the mechanical cell stiffness of circulating tumor cells using the QPI method. Previously, I worked at ISIR (Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics), Sorbonne University as a Research Engineer for 2-years. I was working on designing and controlling poly-articulated atomic force microscopy based on MEMS for in situ observations and characterizations of intracellular structures.

My research background focuses on micro/nanorobotics, micro-sensors, microfabrication, levitation technologies, acoustic systems, and their biomedical applications. My Ph.D. thesis is focusing on Focused Ultrasound (FUS) system for non-invasive, precise drug delivery to explore new routes of treating brain disorders and brain diseases.
