I am now working as a speech scientist at SAIL LABS Technology, Vienna, Austria.>I was a PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Boğaziçi University, and a research assistant at Boğaziçi University Signal and Image Processing Laboratory (BUSIM), Speech Processing Group, working on statistical language modeling, speech recognition and speaker verification under the supervision of Murat Saraçlar. I received my M.Sc. degree in 2009 and my B.S. degree from the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering of Istanbul Technical University, in 2006.
My current focus of research is discriminative language modeling for large vocabulary continuous speech recognition for Turkish. My master's research focuses on developing a robust speaker verification system for mobile and multimodal authentication applications. My other research interests include broadcast news segmentation, sliding text recognition (Video OCR), sign language recognition and music information retrieval.
