BIO

ABOUT ME

Elif Sertel is a Professor at Geomatics Engineering Department of Istanbul Technical University. She received her bachelor’s degree from Istanbul Technical University where she was ranked as the first student among 2002 Geodesy and Photogrammetry Engineering graduates. She received her master’s degree (2004) and doctoral degree (2008) in Geomatics Engineering from the Istanbul Technical University.

She conducted her PhD dissertation work at Rutgers University, USA as a Fulbright Scholar. She is the first Geomatics Engineer selected for Fulbright scholarship in Turkey. She investigated impact of land cover change especially due to the urbanization on regional climate in her PhD study. She held post-doctoral researcher position at Rutgers University. Dr. Sertel became an Assistant Professor at Istanbul Technical University in July 2009. She was entitled as Associate Professor in April 2010 and Professor in March 2016.

She held the Director position at Istanbul Technical University - Center for Satellite Communications and Remote Sensing (ITU-CSCRS) between 2012 and 2021, where she was the Vice-Director between 2009 and 2012. Prof. Sertel has been serving as an expert and Vice-Chair for the evaluation of European Union (EU) projects.

Prof. Sertel received Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the Turkish Academy of Sciences in 2017 (TÜBA-GEBİP) and TUBITAK Incentive Award in Engineering from TUBITAK (The Scientific & Research Council of Turkey) in 2021; first scientist in Turkey to receive both awards in the Geomatics Engineering.

PROJECTS

RESEARCH SUMMARY
My research interests focus on the application of geospatial technologies namely remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to solve environmental issues, generate decision support systems, understand the interactions between the land surface and climate and the impacts of human on climate especially due to the land cover change caused by urbanization.

In terms of basic research, I have been working on data accuracy, uncertainty, geometric and thematic accuracy, creation of Digital Elevation Models and application of data fusion, pixel and object-based image classification techniques to improve the information content extracted from satellite images. On the other hand, I have been addressing the environmental issues like land use/cover changes, water quality modeling and monitoring, climate, agriculture, drought and soil salinity mapping.

In terms of image processing, my interests are machine learning approaches for regression analysis and classification tasks and application of deep learning methods to image-super resolution, pan-sharpening, object identification, and segmentation tasks.

For the last five years, I have been mostly working on deep learning, geospatial data analytics, GeoAI and environmental problems such as soil salinity and droughts. I have been extensively using geostatistical and spatial methods and land and atmospheric models for the quantitative impact analyses of multidisciplinary applications. I have been working on better representation of Land Use Land Cover maps and modeling future LULC.
