Dr. Ozan Özdenizci


Short Bio

Ozan Özdenizci is a research group leader at the Chair of Cyber-Physical-Systems at the Montanuniversität Leoben in Austria, since April 2024. Prior to joining CPS, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science at Graz University of Technology. He received his PhD in electrical engineering from Northeastern University (Boston, MA, USA) in 2020, and his BSc and MSc degrees from Sabancı University (Istanbul, Turkey). His research is focused in the domain of robust, secure and efficient deep learning algorithms for reliable artificial intelligence systems, and statistical signal processing with biomedical applications.
