I am a Professor of Signal Processing at Graduate School of Informatics, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey. I received the B.Sc. (honors) degree from the Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara, Turkey, in 2000, the M.Sc. degree from the University of Bristol, Bristol, U.K., in 2001, both in electrical and electronic engineering, and the Ph.D. degree in computer science from Queen’s University Belfast, Belfast, U.K., in 2004. I held research positions at University of Surrey, Guildford, U.K. (2004-2008) and King’s College London, London, U.K. (2008-2011).
My research interests include audio signal processing, room acoustics, multichannel audio systems, psychoacoustics of spatial hearing, microphone arrays, and game audio. I founded METU Spatial Audio Research Group (METU SPARG) in 2013.
I am a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, a member of UKRI International Development Peer Review College, Audio Engineering Society (AES), Turkish Acoustics Society (TAD), and the European Acoustics Association (EAA). Between 2017-2021, I was an Associate Editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing. I am currently acting as an associate editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters. I am the official representative of METU in MPAI.
