W elcome! I am an Associate Professor and Reader in the
Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) at
The University of Melbourne, where I am the Director of Industry-faced Programs,
and a member of the Control and Signal Processing
and Communications and Networks Laboratories.
I am also a member of the Centre for Market Design (CMD), Melbourne Energy Institute (MEI)
and CEET. >> more
My main research area is decision making (game theory, control, optimisation) for security and resource allocation in networked, communication and energy systems. Current research topics include: power systems (demand management, energy markets, risk management), the role of information in game theory and mechanism design, game-theoretic approaches to network security, and mechanism design for efficient allocation of resources (energy, water, communications). >> more
I received my BS degree in EE from Bogazici University (Istanbul, Turkey), MS and PhD degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (USA), where I worked with Prof. Tamer Başar. Subsequently, I worked in Deutsche Telekom Laboratories (T-labs), as Senior Research Scientist and was an Assistant Professor (Juniorprofessur) at the Tech. Univ. Berlin (TUB), in Germany. >> more
- Saddened by the loss of John Nash (1928-2015). RIP!
- Promoted to be an Assoc. Professor and Reader at the end of 2014.
- Mechanisms and Games for Dynamic Spectrum Allocation, Eds. T. Alpcan, H. Boche, M. L. Honig, and H. V. Poor. The new book is now available!
- I have become a Senior Member of IEEE in 2013.
- I have now over one hundred publications (books, book chapters, journal and conference articles)! It is a nice milestone.
- I am an initiator and steering board member of Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security - GameSec
