Bige Deniz Unluturk has been selected to participate in Rising Stars 2019, hosted by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Unluturk is a Ph.D. student in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).

Rising Stars is an intensive workshop for women graduate students and postdocs who are interested in pursuing academic careers in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering. The workshop will be held from October 29-November 1 at the UIUC campus.  

Unluturk joined the Georgia Tech School of ECE in 2013, and she is a member of the Broadband Wireless Networking Laboratory. Her advisor is Ian Akyildiz, who holds the Ken Byers Professorship in Telecommunications in ECE. Unluturk completed her M.Sc. degree in ECE at Koc University (Istanbul, Turkey) in 2013, and she earned her B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey) in 2011.

Unluturk’s Ph.D. thesis research focuses on Internet of Bio-NanoThings (IoBNT), which is a network of electronic and biological devices, called Bio-NanoThings. These devices communicate through different means, ranging from electromagnetic waves to molecular communications in order to pervasively, perpetually, and precisely sense, process, control, and exchange body health parameters in real time. The ultimate goal of IoBNT is to establish continuous communication among the biomedical devices inside, on, and outside of the body to improve human health and quality of life.
