HULYA YALCIN, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

I received my B.S. and M.S. degree from Department of Electrical & Electronics Engineering at BogaziCi University (BOUN).

I continued my education through Ph.D. degree in the Division of Engineering (Electrical Sciences and Computer Engineering) at Brown University. I received my Ph.D. degree in 2004 and started working in Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) as a postdoctoral researcher. Having worked at an industrial company as a researcher and as a research scientist in BogaziCi University, I joined İstanbul Technical University as an Assistant Professor in 2011.

I have worked with Prof. Michael Black on segmenting motion layers in video sequences during my Ph.D. studies. I have worked with Prof. Martial Hebert and Prof. Takeo Kanade on tracking vehicles in airborne video imagery during my posdoctoral studies. Object recognition and classification as well as understanding human activities using both video sequences and depth sensors are the main goal of my research. Currently I am working on a project (AISENSE) to build an exer-gaming system that allows elderly people to naturally interact with a virtual environment through their body movements and assess their physical performance which is supported by a Marie Curie Career Integration Grant from the European Commission.
