Biography

Onur received the B.Sc. degree (with the highest distinction) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the Bilkent University, Turkey in 2011; M.Sc. (with the highest distinction) and Dr.-Ing. (Ph.D. equivalent) degrees in Communications Engineering both from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany in October 2013 and November 2018, respectively. He was a working student in the Communication Systems division of Intel Mobile Communications (IMC) [now Apple Inc.] in Munich, Germany between November 2012 - March 2013. He later worked as a Research and Teaching Assistant at TUM between February 2014 - May 2019. Onur was a Visiting Research Associate, among his 10 Research Stays at Top Universities and Companies, at the Information and Communication Theory (ICT) Lab of TU Eindhoven, The Netherlands between February 2018 - March 2018. He was a Research Associate & Dozent between June 2019 - September 2020 and a Research Group Leader & Project Leader & Dozent between October 2020-March 2021 both at TU Berlin, Germany, and he has held the same academic titles at the Chair of Communications Engineering and Security at the University of Siegen, Germany since April 2021. Onur has been a Brain City Berlin Ambassador since June 2020. His research interests include information theoretic privacy and security, coding theory, statistical signal processing for biometrics and physical unclonable functions (PUFs), private (federated) learning, secure terahertz (THz) communications, and doubly-exponential (secure) identification via channels.
