Irem Boybat joined IBM Research – Zurich as a pre-doctoral researcher in November of 2015. She is a member of the Cloud & Computing Infrastructure department, where her focus is on Neuromorphic Computing.
Prior to this, Irem was a research scholar at IBM Research – Almaden, San Jose, California for 6 months where she worked on cognitive computing with non-volatile memory devices.
Irem is working toward her PhD degree in Electrical Engineering (EDEE) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. She earned her Master of Science degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, also from EPFL, in August of 2015 and her Bachelor of Science degree in Electronics Engineering from Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2013.
