About

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the group of Prof. Michael Beetz. My primary research focus is on knowledge representation and learning using cloud robotics. I have obtained my doctor of engineering (Dr.-Ing.) degree from the Mathematics and Computer Science Department at the University of Bremen in May'19 for my dissertation entitled "Fast Robot Learning using Prospection and Experimental Knowledge: A Cognitive Approach using Narrative-Enabled Episodic Memories and Symbolic Knowledge".

During my doctoral studies, I conducted research as a visiting student at JSK Lab., The University of Tokyo under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Kei Okada in Summer'17. Also, I visited Prof. Byoung-Tak Zhang's Biointelligence Lab at Seoul National University in April and May'18.

Previously, I received my M.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Middle East Technical University (METU), where I was a member of KOVAN Research Laboratory, working on the European FP7 project ROSSI under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Erol Şahin and Assoc. Prof. Erhan Öztop. I wrote my master thesis on the cognitive development of grasp behaviour for iCub, an open-source humanoid robotic platform. Prior to my master's degree, I studied Computer Engineering (B.Sc.) at Bilkent University where my graduation project was developing a simulation for The Multi Autonomous Ground-robotic International Challenge 2010.

You can find more information about me at my personal web site (http://asil.bz).
