I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Central Florida and working as a research assistant, supervised by Prof. Turgut (UCF) and Prof. Bagci (Northwestern) jointly. My research interests are in the intersection of deep learning prediction algorithms for high-risk applications such as medical imaging. Specifically I aim to develop explainable, trustable AI systems that can be used for radiation oncology and radiology systems.
