I am a doctoral researcher in the Computer Vision team at Naver Labs Europe and the THOTH team at Inria Grenoble, working with my amazing supervisors Diane Larlus, Karteek Alahari and Yannis Kalantidis. My studies focus on two particular ways in learning visual representations: self-supervised learning (to learn from unlabeled data) and vision + language (to learn from textual supervision).
I received my M.Sc. degree from the Computer Engineering Department at Bilkent University. During my master, I worked with R. Gokberk Cinbis on various machine learning problems. I feel lucky and proud of being one of his students.
I received my B.Sc. from the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department at Anadolu University (now Eskisehir Technical University) in 2016, where my thesis project was supervised by Ömer Nezih. Besides, during my final year at Anadolu, I as a Visean! For this hands-on experience, I am grateful to Cihan Topal
