I am a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the Northwestern University. I got my PhD’10 from Northwestern, and my MSc’05 and BSc’03 degrees from Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey.

I am currently working mainly on short-wave infrared single photon detectors and imagers, with a side interest in plasmonic nanoantennas on quantum cascade lasers, all-optical switchable lasers, optoelectromechanical photon detectors, novel quantum cascade lasers, tunable quantum well infrared detectors, fiber-optic biosensors and fiber-optic based tunable filters.
