Experience

Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems

Undergraduate Research Assistant
June 2022 - August 2022 Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

  • Worked in the Physical Intelligence Department with Sinan Özgün Demir and Alp Can Karacakol on a project about 3D printing and heat‑assisted magnetic programming of soft machines.
  • Updated a ROS package for converting 3D motion controller events to ROS messages so that it synchronously operates at any given loop rate.
  • Implemented an Arduino Mega driver for controlling a fluid dispenser, a laser, thermocouples, and a coil set. Updated ROS nodes for parsing G‑codes and controlling stage movement and built the ROS‑Arduino communication network to simulate a 3D printing and magnetic programming process.

Nanonetworking Research Group, Boğaziçi University

Undergraduate Research Assistant
October 2021 - Present Istanbul, Turkey

  • Currently working with Assoc. Prof. Ali Emre Pusane on the project “Design and Implementation of Molecular Communication Systems Using Index Modulation” under the TÜBİTAK 2247‑C Intern Researcher Scholarship Program (STAR).
  • Simulated the Brownian motion of molecules in a SISO MCvD system and predicted simulation parameters such as receiver radius, diffusion coefficient, and transmitter‑receiver distance using CNNs with Python.
  • Plotted the arrival of molecules per symbol duration in a SISO MCvD system using Binomial, Poisson, and Gaussian model approximations with MATLAB.
  • Ran Monte Carlo simulations of the Gaussian model to encode/decode randomized binary sequences in a SISO MCvD system using BCSK modulation technique and calculated the bit error rate (BER) on Z‑channel.

SESTEK Speech Enabled Software Technologies

Natural Language Processing R&D Intern
January 2022 - February 2022 Istanbul, Turkey

  • Implemented common NLP tasks using transformers such as named‑entity recognition (NER), part‑of‑speech (POS) tagging, sentiment analysis, text classification, and extractive/generative question answering.
  • Built a generative question answering system via Dense Passage Retrieval (DPR) and Retrieval‑Augmented Generation (RAG) using the Haystack framework with Python.
  • Worked on a custom Turkish open‑domain question answering system by fine‑tuning a BERT base model transformer. Evaluated the exact match and F1 scores using different Turkish data sets and compared the evaluation results.

Ankara Metropolitan Municipality

SCADA Engineering Intern
August 2021 - September 2021 Ankara, Turkey

  • Designed GSM/GPRS‑based electrical control panels that are connected to local water pump automation systems. Pump station panels use digital output data received from the SCADA control center via RF transmission to control valves and pumps. Tank station panels are charged from the PV system and refill water tanks by signaling the pump station panel when the float switch is activated.
  • Implemented motor control circuits by reading their PLC ladder diagrams and analyzed the EPLAN project documentation, HMI, and hardware components of an RTU panel.

Meteksan Defense Industry Inc.

Analog Design Engineering Intern
July 2021 - August 2021 Ankara, Turkey

  • Designed numerous analog circuits such as voltage‑mode controlled buck converter, phase‑shifted full‑bridge isolated DC‑DC converter, and EMI filters with LTspice. Integrated these circuits and implemented a 320 W power distribution unit to be used in a radar system’s power circuit board.
  • Researched real‑world compatible electronic components to be used in such circuits including GaNFETs, high‑side gate drivers, and Schottky diodes.
  • Assembled PCBs of both common and differential mode filters and used VNA Bode 100 to measure the cut‑off frequencies.

Projects

Filters and Fractals

A C project which implements various image processing operations and recursive fractal generating algorithms.

N‑Puzzle Solver

A C++ project which efficiently solves any given N‑puzzle using backtracking on a decision tree.

Butterworth Filter
