Short Bio

 

Dr. Melike Erol-Kantarci is a tenure-track assistant professor at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Ottawa, ON, Canada She is the founding director of the Networked Systems and Communications Research (NETCORE) laboratory. She is also a courtesy assistant professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY.

 

She has over 2600 citations and her h-index is 25 (Google Profile).  She is the co-editor of the book “Smart Grid: Networking, Data Management, and Business Models”. Her articles are continuously among the top cited and top accessed papers on IEEE and Elsevier databases. She is a senior member of the IEEE. She is an editor of IEEE Communications Letters.

 

Prior to joining University of Ottawa, Dr. Melike Erol-Kantarci was a tenure-track assistant professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clarkson University. Before that she was the coordinator of the Smart Grid Communications Lab and a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Ottawa, Canada.

 

She received the Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer Engineering in 2009 and 2004 from Istanbul Technical University. During her Ph.D. studies, she was a Fulbright visiting researcher at the Computer Science Department of the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). She conducted research on underwater sensor networks. Her PhD thesis study is supervised by Professor Sema Oktug from Istanbul Technical University and Professor Mario Gerla from UCLA. She received the B.Sc. degree from the Department of Control and Computer Engineering of the Istanbul Technical University.

 

She has received several National Science Foundation (NSF) grants, industry grants, Fulbright PhD Research Scholarship and Siemens Excellence Award, in addition to two Outstanding/Best Paper Awards. She is the co-author of Wireless Sensor Networks for Cost-Efficient Residential Energy Management in the Smart Grid which is selected to IEEE ComSoc Best Readings on Smart Grid Communications and is among the top 10 cited papers of the IEEE Transactions of Smart Grid. She has delivered tutorials at IEEE ICC15, WCNC15, VTC14-Fall, CCECE14 conferences, and invited talks at various venues including Communications Research Center (CRC) of Canada, National Research Council (NRC) of Canada, IEEE Ottawa Chapter and Turkish Naval Research Center.

 

She is the vice-chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Green Communications & Computing Special Interest Group (SIG) on Green Smart Grid Communications.  She is also the research group leader for IEEE Smart Grid and Big Data Standardization. She was the vice-chair for IEEE Ottawa Section Women in Engineering (WIE) between 2012 and 2014. She is the workshops co-chair for VTC-Fall 2017. She was the TPC co-chair of IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2016, ADHOCNET 2015-2014.
