I am a doctoral candidate in the ESE department and the GRASP Lab at Penn where I am advised by Michael Posa. Previously, I was an undergraduate at Istanbul Technical University where I worked with İbrahim Eksin, M. Turan Söylemez and Neslihan Serap Şengör.
I am interested in intersection of robotics, control theory, non-smooth mechanics and optimization. I am working on real-time multi-contact optimal control and currently validating our methods on a physical robot executing dynamic manipulation tasks. I am also exploring reinforcement learning algorithms for the same class of systems.
