PhD Students

İDİL GEMİCİ

After completing my bachleor’s degree in Translation and Interpreting Studies at Yeditepe University, I have obtained my master’s degree in Cognitive Science and Language at the University of Barcelona, where I have developed my research interests in neuro- and biolingusitics. Upon graduating, I have started my doctoral education in Neuroscience at Yeditepe University with a particular aim to conduct interdisciplinary research between the fields neurophysiology , cognitive science and linguistics. As a PhD candidate, I am currently working on my doctoral thesis which aims to understand the neurobiological underpinnings of language control in sign and spoken languages under the supervision of Drs. Rabia Ergin and Funda Yıldırım. In addition to my academic interests, I am trained classical ballet dancer, an art enthusiast and a translator with a focus on book translations in evolutionary biology, language and cognition, and neurosciences.

EDA NUR ÇAPKAN ALTUN

I graduated from Bahceşehir University in Biomedical Engineering Department. I got my master degree in Neuroscience at Üsküdar University. My master thesis was about classification of opioid use disorder and control groups with QEEG-based biomarkers using machine learning methods. At present, I am a PhD student in Neuroscience Program at Yeditepe University. Currently, I am studying the effect of visual and semantic cues on olfactory recognition performance and the crossmodal association between colors and odors as my doctoral thesis project under the supervision of Dr. Funda Yıldırım.

BÜŞRA KURU

I graduated from İstanbul University, Computer Engineering Department with BS in 2012 and MS in 2015. My master thesis was a classification of EEG signals on epilepsy patients using feature extraction and machine learning methods. I am interested in signal processing in neurological disorders.

EMRE YORGANCIGİL

(Currently a Post-doctoral Researcher at Acıbadem University)

After I graduated from Süleyman Demirel University Faculty of Medicine in 2015, I started Neuroscience PhD program in Yeditepe University. I had observed different research areas of Neuroscience like neuron physiology and optongenetics in first years of my PhD. then, I decided to focus on cognitive neuroscience. Currently, I have started my doctoral thesis project on “human and robot face perception differences on gender” with Dr. Funda Yıldırım. We will explore perception differences with behavioral and electrophysiological methods. My research interests are face perception analysis with EEG, face-voice congruence and human-robot interactions.
