Biography

Dr. Özaslan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Yıldırım Beyazıt University, Ankara, TURKEY.

Dr. Özaslan received dual B.S. degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science from Middle East Technical University (METU) in 2008. Dr. Özaslan is first in METU history to receive a dual degree in these two departments. He then moved to Bilkent University for graduate studies. He obtained a M.Sc. degree in computer science in 2011 under the supervision of Prof. Uluç Saranlı. He received his Ph.D. degree at University of Pennsylvania, GRASP Laboratories under the  the supervision of Prof. Vijay Kumar and Prof. Camillo J. TaylorIn his thesis Dr. Özaslan focuses on state estimation, mapping and autonomous navigation of micro unmanned aerial vehicles. Upon completion of his Ph.D. degree, he worked at Motional, Boston as a research scientist for 2 years on high definition map building for autonomous driving vehicles.
