Onur Kaya received the B.S. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, in 2000, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Maryland, College Park, in 2002 and 2005 respectively. Since 2005, he has been with the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department at Işık University in Istanbul, Turkey. His research interests are in the fields of wireless communication theory and information theory, with particular focus on multi-user information theory, user cooperation and resource allocation in wireless networks.
Dr. Kaya is a recipient of the 2008 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference Best Paper Award, and the 2010 Işık University Award for Outstanding Achievement in Teaching. He currently serves as an Associate Editor for the Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences, the Tutorials Co-chair for the 2014 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference, and the Fundemantals and PHY Track Co-Chair for the 2014 IEEE Personal, Indoor and Mobile Communications Conference.
Open RA Positions
Research assistantship positions are available, for a project titled 'User cooperation and resource allocation in energy harvesting wireless networks'. This is a joint project with Prof. Sennur Ulukus, at University of Maryland. Details
