Assist. Prof. Beren Semiz from the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department has received the IEEE Technical Committee on Computational Life Sciences (TCCLS) 2020 PhD Thesis Award with her thesis titled ‘Digital Biomarker Discovery for Non-Invasive Health Monitoring with Acoustic and Vibration Signals’. Dr. Semiz completed her PhD studies in November 2020 at Georgia Institute of Technology in the United States. Her work mainly focused on proposing novel frameworks leveraging wearable vibration and acoustic measurements for knee joint and cardiovascular health assessment to improve the management of various diseases and injuries outside the physical confines of the clinic.

We congratulate Dr. Beren Semiz and wish her continued success!
