Short Biography:

Dr Halis Altun graduated from the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering of Yıldız Technical University in 1991. He was granted Overseas Postgraduate Student Scholarship by Council of Higher Education in 1993. He completed his PhD in 1999 at University of Nottingham, UK. His PhD topic was to investigate the acoustic-to-articulatory mapping problem to effectively determine the parameters of an articulatory speech synthesizer using artificial neural networks. After completing his PhD, Dr Altun served as Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical-Electronics, Nigde University, Turkey. In 2006, Dr Altun was in UK for a postdoctoral visit to conduct a research on parameter selection and decision fusion techniques for emotion detection from speech signals at Machine Learning Group (ISIS) leading by Prof. John Shawe Taylor of Southampton University. The first part of research has been carried out in ISIS group and the last part of research has been completed at Computer Science of University College of London. Dr Altun established a research group at Nigde University, focusing on Implementation of Signal Processing and Pattern Recognition Techniques on Embedded Systems, especially on FPGA (Field Programming Gate Arrays) for real-time applications. In general, his research interest comprises diverse application areas of speech and image processing using soft computing techniques such as artificial neural networks, genetic algorithm, particle swarm and taboo search and their real-time implementation. He has also published several papers on Engineering Education. Between 2011-2015, Dr Altun acted as Head of Computer Engineering Department, Mevlana University, Turkey. He was later Head of Electrical&Electroncs Engineering Department of KTO Karatay University between 2015-2017.
