Yigitcan Eryaman, Ph.D.


Assistant Professor
1-211E CMRR

Dr. Yigitcan Eryaman received his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Bilkent University, Turkey. Following the graduation, he joined the National Magnetic Resonance Research Center (UMRAM) in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Bilkent University, where he earned his MS (2007) and PhD (2011) degrees. He continued his research at the Research Lab of Electronics at MIT and Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at MGH. He joined CMRR as a research associate in 2014 and later promoted to an assistant professor in 2018. He has published journal and conference papers as well as patents on various problems related to magnetic resonance imaging. His research interests include investigation of hardware and software based solutions for radio-frequency safety problems in MRI. He is a recipient of NIH/NIBIB K99 Pathway to Independence Award (2016).
