I am a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Computer Engineering at Boğaziçi University. My thesis advisors are Tunga Güngör and Murat Saraçlar. I have a B.S. in Computer Science from Bilkent University.

My current research focuses on developing a large vocabulary automatic speech recognition system for Turkish. I am concentrating on the language modeling and speech decoding challenges associated with agglutinative languages and rich morphology.

In my M.S. thesis here, I worked on developing "A corpus-based concatenative speech synthesis system for Turkish". (BibTeX)

I have industrial research experience in speech technologies specifically speech recognition and text-to-speech. For more information you can see my CV.
