Dr.Melda KÜÇÜKDEMİRCİ is currently working as an Assistant Professor in Geophysical Engineering Department at Istanbul University. She received her Ph.D. degree in 2014 from the same department. During Ph.D studies, she engaged in research projects in Istituto per le Tecnologie Applicate ai Beni Culturali (ITABC-CNR-Italy) between 2011- 2012 and in 2014. She worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Laboratory of Geophysical-Remote Sensing & Archaeoenvironment (GeoSat ReSeArch Lab (FORTH-Greece).She worked as a postdoctoral researcher at DARKlab at Lund University in 2020-2022. Her research focuses on geophysical prospection for archaeology, ground-penetrating radar, magnetometry, data fusion and integration techniques on archaeo- geophysical data. Recently she is running a research project on Deep Learning based analysis for archaeological remote sensing. She is a member of Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) and member of management committee of International Society of Archaeological Prospection (ISAP).
