Tarik Kelestemur

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Computer Engineering program at Northeastern University and working in the RIVeR Lab. I received my BS degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from TOBB University of Economy and Technology in Turkey.

My research focus on integrated grasping and motion planning for (mobile) manipulators in domestic and industrial settings. I am specifically interested in applying optimization and deep reinforcement learning to real world robotic grasping applications. Beside my research, I lead the Team Northeasern for the RoboCup@Home competition.
