Sinem ASLAN, Ph.D.

I have been a part of Ege University, International Computer Institute as a research assistant since 2004. Meanwhile, I am a visiting postdoctoral researcher at European Centre for Living Technology (ECLT) of Ca' Foscari University of Venice in Italy.

Prior to that;

  • 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 for automatic dietary monitoring.

  • I obtained my Ph.D. degree in 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.

  • With the emphasis on the areas of computer vision and machine learning, my current research interests focus on developing algorithms for semantic segmentation. I have also lately been interested in developing computer vision based solutions for cultural heritage problems.
