I studied civil engineering at the Middle East Technical University (METU) and obtained B.S. degree in 2001. I joined METU Informatics Institute for my graduate studies where I started to work on computer vision. I obtained M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Information Systems Department of Informatics Institute in April 2005 and July 2009, respectively. During my Ph.D. studies, I mostly worked on 3D computer vision especially when omnidirectional cameras are included. I was with the Perception Group at INRIA Rhone-Alpes as a visiting researcher for six months in 2008. I conducted a post-doctoral research visit to Oxford Brookes Vision Group in 2010. In 2011, I started as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Engineering, Izmir Institute of Technology. In 2017, I became an Associate Professor at the same department.
