Omur Arslan

PhD, ESE '16, PostDoc, ESE '17 - Assistant Professor, Eindhoven University of Technology

Omur Arslan is currently a research scientist in Autonomous Motion Department at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) in Tuebingen, Germany, working with Stefan Schaal. Prior to joining MPI-IS in October 2017, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, where he also received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and System Engineering in August 2016 under the supervision of Daniel E. Koditschek. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey, in 2007 and from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, in 2009, respectively. His current research interests include geometric and topological characterization of clustering methods and its application to robot motion planning and control, sensor networks, machine perception, machine learning and data mining.
