Onur Günlü, Dr.-Ing.


Onur received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the Bilkent University, Turkey in 2011 with a comprehensive scholarship from the university. He was also granted Outstanding Success fellowships given separately by the Turkish Prime Ministry, Turkish Education Foundation (TEV), Aegean Modern Education Foundation (ECEV), etc. He was selected for the Golden Youth Award by the Isbank and finished his B.Sc. degree as one of the Top Students.   

In 2013, he received his M.Sc. degree from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany in Communications Systems under the MSCE program with comprehensive scholarships from German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and TEV. He worked at Intel Mobile Communications GmbH in Munich, Germany as a working student on "Interference Mitigation for Asynchronous Networks in LTE-Advanced for the Link Layer". He was granted an Academic Award for the Top M.Sc. Students by TUM. 
He was a member of the TUM Chair of Communications Engineering as a research and teaching assistant (RA&TA) between 2014-2019. He was a finalist in the Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship in 2014 with his privacy-preserving algorithm designs. He won the 1st prize in the competition ''Hands-On Project Digital Society'' in 2014 with a project entitled "Profit optimization through enterprise collaboration using digital media" generously sponsored by the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation, DAAD, German Centre for International Migration (CIM), and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). His research was funded consecutively by the Alexander-von-Humboldt Professorship and German Research Foundation (DFG) with a focus on information-theoretic privacy and security within two different projects. He organized the 2017 Munich Workshop on Physical Unclonable Functions. He was visiting the Information and Communication Theory (ICT) Lab at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), The Netherlands during February-March 2018 with the generous support via the TU/e RESCURE project. 
Onur has successfully defended his dissertation at TUM, entitled "Key Agreement with Physical Unclonable Functions and Biometric Identifiers", on November 26, 2018 to his Dr.-Exam committee: Profs. Georg Sigl (TUM), Gerhard Kramer (TUM), Frans Willems (TU/e), and Amin Gohari (Sharif University of Technology, Iran).
He was a freelance lecturer at TUM-Asia in Singapore to teach the lecture Communication Engineering on digital communications in February 2019.
Onur is now a Research Group Leader and Dozent at the TU Berlin, Information Theory and Applications Chair funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) on the Post-Shannon communication and secure doubly-exponential identification research! He can be contacted via .
