I received my Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, the M.Sc. degree in Systems & Control Engineering and B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from from the Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey. Currently, I am an instructor at the Department of Computer Science in Tennessee State University and continuing my research on capsule robotics at STORM Lab in Vanderbilt University. During my Ph.D studies, I worked in the CIM Laboratory and CIS Laboratory at Vanderbilt University and RISL Lab at TSU. I also worked in industry for three years as an R&D Leader and project engineer on the development and implementation of intelligent automation systems in GSD (General Systems and Design Inc.). My research interests include hybrid and nonlinear systems, neuro-fuzzy systems, systems engineering, robotics, cognitive control and control theory. My current research concentrates on the swimming robots for colonoscopy. Meanwhile, I am working with my wife, Aysu Erdemir, on computational modelling of music perception.
