    Ulaş Güntürkün

    Is a principal research scientist at UMDCC, working on the design and development of new generation modems to operate in challenging doubly dispersive propagation environments, building on MIMO-OFDM techniques.

    He studied his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada, between 2003 and 2007. Towards the completion of his dissertation, he submitted the results of his Ph.D. research to two journals, and took a leave of absence in good standing status to join the ICTEAM of Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Belgium, in 2008. Upon the acceptance of his journal articles, he defended his Ph.D. thesis at McMaster in 2010.

    His research at UCL between 2008 and 2012 led to the development of novel transmission and reception formats for bandwidth, power and battery–efficient, constant or quasi–constant envelope communication with Continuous Phase Modulation.

    In 2012, he relocated to Turkey, as a recipient of the “Reverse Brain Drain Reintegration” grant that continued until 2014. Between 2014 and 2015, he worked as a sub–contractor consultant for Aselsan A.Ş. (Turkish Military Electronics Inc.) and tailored his previously developed constant envelope modem designs to fit the needs of proprietary satellite communication solutions of Aselsan Inc. He joined UMDCC in September 2015.

    Besides wireless communications, his research has included radar signal processing, statistical signal processing, and machine learning with applications to various inverse problems in physics and engineering.
