Alumnus Omur Ozel joins George Washington University as tenure-track faculty


Alumnus Omur Ozel (EE Ph.D. 2014) joined the George Washington University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in August 2018. Ozel’s research interests are in wireless communications, information theory, signal processing and networks with special interests in energy harvesting communications, wireless energy and information transfer, information and system level security. His research addresses reliability, timeliness, security and robustness challenges in existing and emerging communication and computation settings.   

For his Ph.D. thesis, he developed communication methods for energy harvesting networks, and determined ultimate capacities of such systems. At Maryland, Ozel was advised by Professor Sennur Ulukus (ECE/ISR).

Following his Ph.D. at Maryland, Ozel was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California at Berkeley and the Carnegie Mellon University, before joining George Washington University.
