Dr. Gurdal Arslan receives the NSF CAREER Award (May 2006)

Professor Gurdal Arslan will receive the National Science Foundation CAREER Award on "Cooperative Systems Design - Stochastic Games Approach" in May 2006.

He joined our department as an assistant professor in August 2004. Prior to joining us, he was an Assistant Researcher in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California at Los Angeles from 2001 to 2004.

Professor Arslan received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2001.

His research interests lie in the general area of systems with current emphasis on cooperative systems design using game theoretic methods. Applications of his recent research include autonomous resource allocation for mission planning, multi-sensor deployment, traffic management, and cooperative multi-user MIMO signaling in wireless communication systems.
