İsmail Uyanık
Assistant Professor
Electrical and Electronics Engineering
Hacettepe University

I am an Assistant Professor in Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey. My current research focuses on discovering the principles of animal locomotion via developing novel techniques in the areas of system identification theory, robotics and neuroscience.

I received my B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Bilkent University in 2009, 2011 and 2017, respectively. During my Ph.D., I worked on developing novel system identification techniques for legged locomotion under co-supervision of Dr. Ömer Morgül and Dr. Uluç Saranlı.

I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Laboratory of Computational Sensing and Robotics at the Johns Hopkins University under co-supervision of Dr. Noah J. Cowan and Dr. Eric Fortune. My postdoctoral research focused on understanding sensorimotor control via behavioral and neurophysiological experiments on weakly electric knifefish.
