1. I am a PhD student at the Linkmedia team of Inria Rennes, supervised by Teddy Furon. I received my MSc degree from Bilkent University under the supervision of Pinar Duygulu Sahin, and my BSc from the State University of New York at Binghamton. I had a chance to visit Yahoo Labs Barcelona and Inria Rennes as a research intern during my MSc degree, and Michael Rabbat at McGill University during my PhD.

    Currently, I mainly work on large-scale image retrieval, trying to make efficient retrieval techniques for high-dimensional image representations. In the past, I have also worked on activity recognition from videos.
