Sinem ASLAN, Ph.D.

I have been working as a research assistant at Ege University, International Computer Institute since 2004. I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Imaging and Vision Laboratory (IVL) at Department of Informatics, Systems and Communication of the University of Milano-Bicocca between 03.2017 and 03.2018. In IVL, I have worked on segmentation and semantic segmentation of food images to be used in automatic dietary monitoring systems.

Prior to that, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in International Computer Institute, Ege University, Turkey, under supervisions of Prof. Bülent Sankur and Prof. E. Turhan Tunalı . I mainly investigated model-based visual dictionary techniques for image understanding applications in my thesis and I held a visiting position in BUSIM laboratory at Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department of Boğaziçi University, Turkey, for two semesters during my Ph.D. studies.

My research interests focus on visual content analysis and description, scene understanding, image segmentation and semantic segmentation, with emphasis on the areas of computer vision and machine learning.
