Education/Academic qualification

2018Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), University of Edinburgh
"Dense Wireless Network Design and Evaluation – An Aircraft Cabin Use Case"


I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electronics Engineering from Kadir Has University (KHU), Istanbul, Turkey in 2011 and 2013, respectively. I received my Ph.D. degree in Digital Communications from the Institute for Digital Communications (IDCoM), the University of Edinburgh, UK in 2018. Currently, I am a post-doctoral research associate at the LiFi Research and Development Centre, the University of Edinburgh.

Research Interests

My research interests include interference analysis, radio resource management and optimization of wireless communication (both radio frequency and optical) systems for specific/user dense environments.

My research in a nutshell

I focus on the modelling, designing and analysing radio frequency and optical wireless communication systems. I study antenna selection techniques for coded MIMO systems, non-cooperative game theoretic approaches and resource allocation/scheduling techniques to control/mitigate interference in order to improve overall system throughput. My research has addressed deployment of in-cabin (also termed as onboard or in-flight) communication systems (4G, WiFi and LiFi) inside a medium-sized commercial aircraft.
