I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at DISAL. I have recently finished my PhD in the EPFL-IST joint doctoral program, where I have developed a robust model predictive formation control approach for rotary-wing Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs). I was co-advised by Prof. Rodrigo Ventura from IST (Portugal). I received my MSc degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering with a control systems option from Middle East Technical University (METU). My master thesis was related to the control and system identification of autonomous sea-surface vehicles. I obtained my BSc degree in Mechanical Engineering from METU. I also hold a minor degree in Mechatronics from the same university. Further information can be found here:
Research interests and projects
My research interests include aerial robotics, multi-robot systems, autonomy, optimal control and estimation strategies, and localization systems. I aim to deploy rotary-wing MAVs in real-world environments with a prescribed formation geometry so that they can perform high-level tasks optimally, robustly, and with high performance. I pay special attention to leveraging onboard resources for perception and computation. For additional information, please check here.
Teaching and service activities
I participate in teaching activities for Distributed Intelligent Systems (DIS) and Signals, Instruments, and Systems (SIS) courses given at DISAL. I also supervise many master students for their semester and master’s projects.
