Research summary

My research interests include analogue/mixed-signal/RF integrated circuit (IC) design for biomedical applications. I develop circuits and systems for new wearable and implantable technologies to analyse and improve health conditions. My current research themes include:

  • Low power, low noise IC design for sensor readouts
  • Highly efficient power management circuits design for remotely powered implantable devices
  • Low power, high data-rate wireless communication circuits design

I am a Research Fellow in the Bioelectronics Group at the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, University College London. I received PhD degree from Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Microsystems and Microelectronics in 2019. I received my MSc degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from EPFL in 2014.  I received my BSc double major degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Physics (both with high honour) from Bogazici University in 2012.
