Mujdat Cetin received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey in 1993, a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from University of Salford, Manchester UK in 1995, followed by a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Boston University, Boston, MA in 2001. Cetin joins the Electrical and Computer Engineering department as an associate professor from Sabanci University in Istanbul, Turkey, where he has been a faculty member since 2005. Before that, he was with the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at MIT. Cetin has held visiting faculty positions at MIT, Northeastern University, and Boston University.
Cetin has had leadership and organizational roles from several international conferences. He was one of the keynote speakers for the 2015 International Workshop on Compressed Sensing Theory and Its Applications to Radar, Sonar, and Remote Sensing. Cetin is currently serving as the vice chair of the IEEE Computational Imaging Special Interest Group.
Mujdat’s research interests include data, signal, and imaging sciences, with cross-disciplinary links to areas in electrical engineering, computer science, and neuroscience. His research group has made advances in three key areas: computational sensing and imaging as applied to radar and biomedical imaging; probabilistic methods for image and video analysis as applied to biomedical image analysis, microscopic neuroimaging, and computer vision; and signal processing and machine learning for brain-computer/machine interfaces, with applications for alternative communication and rehabilitation for patients and monitoring of cognitive states.
