Sennur Ulukus is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland at College Park, where she also holds a joint appointment with the Institute for Systems Research (ISR). Prior to joining UMD, she was a Senior Technical Staff Member at AT&T Labs-Research. She received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB), Rutgers University, and B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University. Her research interests are in wireless communication theory and networking, network information theory for wireless communications, signal processing for wireless communications, information-theoretic physical-layer security, and energy-harvesting communications.
Dr. Ulukus received the 2003 IEEE Marconi Prize Paper Award in Wireless Communications, the 2005 NSF CAREER Award, and the 2010-2011 ISR Outstanding Systems Engineering Faculty Award. She served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory between 2007-2010, as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications between 2003-2007, as a Guest Editor for the Journal of Communications and Networks for the special issue on energy harvesting in wireless networks, as a Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory for the special issue on interference networks, as a Guest Editor for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications for the special issue on multiuser detection for advanced communication systems and networks. She served as the TPC co-chair of the Communication Theory Symposium at the 2007 IEEE Globecom, the Medium Access Control (MAC) Track at the 2008 IEEE WCNC, the Wireless Communications Symposium at the 2010 IEEE ICC, the 2011 Communication Theory Workshop (CTW), the Physical-Layer Security Workshop at the 2011 IEEE ICC, the Physical-Layer Security Workshop at the 2011 IEEE Globecom. She was the Secretary of the IEEE Communication Theory Technical Committee (CTTC) in 2007-2009.
