Orhan completed a PhD in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. He received his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, followed by his SM degree at MIT on the Quantum Electron Microscope project. His PhD helped enable many new molecular tools for precise imaging of neural activity, and helped empower new approaches for analysis of C. elegans neural dynamics.
