Erchan Aptoula (Erhan Abdullah), PhD
Professor of Computer Science
Hello and welcome to my webpage!
I'm a computer scientist working at the Institute of Information Technologies of Gebze Technical University, Turkey.
Besides teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels, I conduct research on digital image analysis and computer vision, through both shallow and deep approaches.
I have experience with color, multi- and hyperspectral images involving applications including large scale systematic production of landuse/landcover maps from remote sensing images, content based retrieval, industrial inspection, water quality estimation from Sentinel 2 data, night-time real-time vehicle detection and tracking, plant recognition, weed/crop classification for precision farming, plant and crowd counting, various biomedical applications, and more.
Multiple TÜBİTAK scholarships are available at graduate and undergraduate level on computer vision applied to various fields.
Contact me for more details.
