Safa Cicek

I am a PhD candidate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at UCLA. I work under the supervision of Stefano Soatto in the Vision Lab.

I obtained my B.Eng degree from Electrical Engineering department of Bilkent University, Turkey, 2015. I obtained my MS degree from Electrical and Computer Engineering department of UCLA, 2017.

I am interested in deep learning, semi-supervised learning, unsupervised domain adaptation and reinforcement learning.
