**BIOGRAPHY**

Ayfer Ozgur is an assistant professor in Electrical Engineering.

“When I first learned about information theory as a student, I remember being fascinated by how fuzzy ideas like information, a message, a communication system can be given concrete mathematical definitions, and how by solving math problems, one can arrive at surprising insights for how to optimally design an engineering system. This back and forth between math and engineering is what I most like about information theory. My work focuses on information theory, and wireless communication and networks.”
