Biography

I work as an Assistant Professor at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands, in the Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3) Section. I received my B.Sc. degree with a double specialization in Communications and Microwaves/Antennas from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey, in 2014, and the M.Sc. (Cum Laude, with the Justus & Louise van Effen Scholarship) and Ph.D. degrees (Cum Laude) in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 2016 and 2020, respectively. Following my Postdoctoral Research at TU Delft, I started working in my current role. My research interests include phased arrays for next-generation communication and sensing systems, array optimization, cooling, multibeam antennas, front-end architectures, and beamforming algorithms.

    Abstract: ... Abstract Multi-port multi-mode antenna elements have the ability to move their phase centers and modify their radiation patterns electronically. Arrays composed of such elements are referred to as virtually aperiodic arrays in this paper. Herein, optimization of the mode excitation coefficients in virtually aperiodic sparse linear arrays is proposed, by introducing novel design constraints with the aim of synthesizing wide-angle scanning, reconfigurable patterns, with grating/side lobe reduction. A dual-mode patch antenna is used for demonstration purposes. An efficient convex optimization based algorithm is adopted to optimize the excitation weight at each element mode port, while considering the mutual coupling effects. Through full-wave simulations, the effectiveness of the optimization in suppressing the unwanted radiation and adapting to different fields-of-view is shown. A novel investigation on the impacts of defining different mode excitation ratios on the radiation pattern characteristics is conducted.
