About

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Video Processing Lab at UCSD, led by Prof. Truong Nguyen. I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees from Bilkent University, Turkey. My research interests are mainly in the field of 3D video compression, and include depth-based 3D video coding, virtual view synthesis techniques and analysis of perceptual quality for 3D video.
