Murat Uysal received the B.Sc. and the M.Sc. degree in electronics and communication engineering from Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 1995 and 1998, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, in 2001. Dr. Uysal is currently a Full Professor and Head of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Ozyegin University, Istanbul, Turkey. Prior to joining Ozyegin University, he was a tenured Associate Professor at the University of Waterloo (Canada) where he still holds an adjunct faculty position. Dr. Uysal’s research interests are in the broad areas of communication theory and signal processing with a particular emphasis on the physical layer aspects of wireless communication systems in radio, acoustic and optical frequency bands. He has authored more than 190 journal and conference papers on these topics and received more than 2800 citations.
Dr. Uysal is a Senior IEEE member and an active contributor to his professional society. He currently leads the EU COST Action OPTICWISE which is a consolidated European scientific platform for interdisciplinary research activities in the emerging area of optical wireless communications. Dr. Uysal serves on the editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, Wiley Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (WCMC) Journal, and Wiley Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (ETT). In the past, he served as an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications (2003-2011) and IEEE Communications Letters (2004-2012). Dr. Uysal’s national and international distinctions include the Turkish Academy of Sciences Distinguished Young Scientist Award, NSERC Discovery Accelerator Supplement Award, and University of Waterloo Engineering Research Excellence Award among others.
