About me

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at KTH as a Digital Futures fellow. My research focuses on creating personal robots that can continually learn and adapt to assist in everyday life.

Previously, I was a Research and Development Associate at Evinoks Service Equipment Industry and Commerce Inc., developing customizable software for industrial robots and smart buffets. Prior to that, I worked as an R&D Lab Associate at Disney Research Los Angeles on emotional language adaptation in multiparty interactions.

I have a diverse background in robotics, from personalization in long-term human-robot interaction during my PhD at the University of Plymouth and SoftBank Robotics Europe as a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions fellow, to user-centred task planning for household robotics, and motion and behavior planning for robot football during my MSc in computer engineering, and building educational robots for BSc in mechanical engineering at Bogazici University.

I often coordinate and co-organize workshops that focus on lifelong learning and personalization in long- term human-robot interaction, in addition to open-sourcing benchmarks and software for robots. More information about my projects, workshops, and publications is available on my website.
