Neslisah Torosdagli

Computer Science PhD Candidate

I am a PhD student in Computer Science Division of University of Central Florida. I received my BS and MS degrees from Computer Engineering Department of Middle East Technical University, and second MS degree from Computer Science Department of University of Central Florida. I am pursuing my PhD degree since 2014. I am working under supervision of Dr. Ulas Bagci and Dr. Sumanta Pattanaik in Graphics Research Lab. My main interest is Quantitative Visualization of Craniofacial Medical Data. I am working on a smart visualization framework.
