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 communications, information theory, signal processing, networking, information theoretic physical layer security, and energy harvesting communications.
Dr. Ulukus is a fellow of the IEEE, and a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher of the University of Maryland. She received the 2003 IEEE Marconi Prize Paper Award in Wireless Communications, an 2005 NSF CAREER Award, the 2010-2011 ISR Outstanding Systems Engineering Faculty Award, and the 2012 ECE George Corcoran Education Award.
Dr. Ulukus is on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications – Series on Green Communications and Networking (2015-). She was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory (2007-2010) and IEEE Transactions on Communications (2003-2007). She was a Guest Editor for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications (2015 and 2008), Journal of Communications and Networks (2012), and IEEE Transactions on Information Theory (2011). She is a general TPC co-chair of 2017 IEEE ISIT, 2016 IEEE Globecom, 2014 IEEE PIMRC, and 2011 IEEE CTW. She was a symposium/track TPC co-chair of the Communication Theory Symposium at 2014 IEEE Globecom, Energy Harvesting and Green Wireless Communications Symposium at 2013 GlobalSIP, Communication Theory Symposium at 2013 IEEE ICC, Physical-Layer Security Workshop at 2011 IEEE Globecom, Physical-Layer Security Workshop at 2011 IEEE ICC, Wireless Communications Symposium at 2010 IEEE ICC, Medium Access Control Track at 2008 IEEE WCNC, and Communication Theory Symposium at 2007 IEEE Globecom.
