Prof. Dr. Esin O. isik

 

Esin Öztürk Işık, Ph.D. completed her Bachelor's studies in the Computer Engineering department of the Middle East Technical University in 1999. She attended the Biomedical Engineering program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She finished her thesis studies on the development of regularization methods for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data reconstruction under the guidance of Donald B. Twieg, Ph.D. and received her Master's degree from UAB in 2002. Thereafter, Dr. Öztürk Işık was admitted to the joint Bioengineering program between the University of California at Berkeley and the University of California at San Francisco. She joined the Margaret Hart Surbeck Laboratory of Advanced Imaging to work with Sarah J. Nelson, Ph.D. The goal of her thesis research was to implement several fast MRI and magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) data acquisition and reconstruction techniques for faster and more accurate spectral quantification of brain tumors using the clinical 3T MR scanners. Dr. Öztürk Işık completed her Ph.D. studies in 2007 and continued her research as a postdoctoral fellow in the Radiology and Biomedical Imaging department at University of California at San Francisco. Her postdoctoral research studies included the implementation and optimization of higher resolution and sensitivity MRSI techniques on the whole body high field 7T MRI scanners. Dr. Öztürk Işık has been working as an assistant professor at the Biomedical Engineering Institute of the Bogaziçi University since Fall 2014. The main aim of her projects has been developing novel molecular magnetic resonance imaging techniques to allow for a better understanding of underlying biochemistry of diseases in order to improve patient health.
