Ali Çağatay Cırık

Ali received the B.S and M.S. degrees in telecommunications and electronics engineering from Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2007 and 2009, respectively. While he is a member of CTT Group at Sabanci University, we completed his M.S. thesis entitled “Iterative Low-Complexity Detection for LDPC Coded Multi-Relay Channels” under the supervision of Dr. Mehmet Keskinoz. As a successful CTT member, we has got scholarship from the Department of Electrical engineering at University of California, Riverside(http://www.ee.ucr.edu/) to pursue his Ph.D study. He is currently working towards the Ph.D. degree on “Transceiver Designs for Full-Duplex MIMO Radios with Self-Interference”, where he has developed efficient algorithms for the optimization problems related to full-duplex MIMO systems for such a promising technology of future mobile networks. His industry experience includes internships at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (http://www.merl.com), Cambridge, MA, in 2012 and at Broadcom Corporation (http://www.broadcom.com/), Irvine, CA, in 2013.

 

Mümin İmamoğlu

Mümin İmamoğlu was a member of CTT group durin 2006-2008 for his M.S. thesis entitled “Distributed Detection Strategies for Wireless Serial Sensor Networks”. In his thesis, suboptimal fusion rules to the optimal fusion rule for serial distributed detection were proposed . In particular, the low and high SNR approximations of the optimal rule have been derived. Then, the effects of node failure on the serial distributed detection performance were investigated and robust decision fusion rules under node failure have been devised. Lastly, feedback strategies have been proposed and appropriate decision fusion rules for the suggested strategies have been derived. From 2009-2011, he worked in Nortel Netaş, Istanbul/Turkey as a Design & Software Engineer. Now, Mumin Imamoglu works as a researcher at the Informatics and Information Security Center of the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK), Kocaeli, Turkey.
