Dr. Arslan (IEEE Fellow, NAI Fellow, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, Member of Turkish Academy of Science) received his BS degree from the Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara, Turkey in 1992; his MS and Ph.D. degrees were received respectively in 1994 and 1998 from Southern Methodist University (SMU), Dallas, TX. From January 1998 to August 2002, he was with the research group of Ericsson, where he was involved with several projects related to 2G and 3G wireless communication systems.  Between August 2002 and August 2022, he was with the Electrical Engineering Department, at the University of South Florida, where he was a Professor. In December 2013, he joined Istanbul Medipol University to found the Engineering College, where he has been working as the Dean of the School of Engineering and Natural Sciences. In addition, he has worked as a part-time consultant for various companies and institutions including Anritsu Company, Savronik Inc., and The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey.  Dr. Arslan served as the founding Chairman of The Board Of Directors of ULAK Communication Company, which is the Turkish telecom equipment provider. He was also a member of the Tubitak Scientific Board.  Since May 2021, he is serving as a Member of the Board of Directors for Turkcell, the biggest cellular operator in Turkey while also operating in Ukraine, Belarus, and Cyprus.

Dr. Arslan’s research interests are related to advanced signal processing techniques at the physical and medium access layers, with cross-layer design for networking adaptivity and Quality of Service (QoS) control. He is interested in many forms of wireless technologies including cellular radio, wireless PAN/LAN/MANs, fixed wireless access, aeronautical networks, underwater networks,in vivo networks, and wireless sensors networks. His current research interests are on 5G and beyond radio access technologies, physical layer security, interference management (avoidance, awareness, and cancellation), cognitive radio, small cells, UWB, multi-carrier wireless technologies, dynamic spectrum access, co-existence issues on heterogeneous networks, aeronautical (High Altitude Platform) communications,in vivo channel modeling and system design, and underwater acoustic communications. He has served as technical program committee chair, technical program committee member, session and symposium organizer, and workshop chair in several IEEE conferences. He is currently a member of the editorial board for the IEEE Surveys and Tutorials and the Sensors Journal. He has also served as a member of the editorial board for the IEEE Transactions on Communications, the IEEE Transactions on Cognitive Communications and Networking (TCCN), the Elsevier Physical Communication Journal, the Hindawi Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Wiley Wireless Communication and Mobile Computing Journal.

Dr. Arslan has made scholarly contributions in various arenas and his research has created 57 issued patents and more than 80 pending patents, 51 book chapters, 3 edited books and one text book, more than 200 peer-reviewed journal papers (mostly IEEE journals) and more than 260 peer-reviewed IEEE conference papers. His work in wireless communications has led to  more than 20000 citations and to a Google scholar H-index of 57. His outstanding contributions in wireless communications was recognized by his peers by elevation to IEEE Fellow. Dr. Arslan’s research and patents on waveform design  and cognitive radios for emerging and future generation of wireless communication systems (e.g., 5G and 6G) have attracted an exceptionally high level of interest from wireless companies, standards bodies, and his research peers.  As a result of his innovative and creative research approaches, he was elected as Fellow of National Academy of Invertors. He is also selected as a full member of Turkish Academy of Sciences.

In addition to his research activities, Dr. Arslan has also contributed significantly to wireless communication education. He has integrated the outcomes of his research into education which lead him to develop several prestigious educational journal and conference papers. He also has developed a unique “Wireless Systems Laboratory” course (funded by the National Science Foundation and Agilent technologies) where he was able to teach not only the theory but also the practical aspects of wireless communication system with the most contemporary test and measurement equipment. Dr. Arslan has been honored with numerous teaching awards in recognition of his reputation among students as an effective teacher. He has graduated 27 PhD students and 24 MS students. His students received numerous awards and found employment in top universities and key industrial companies all over the world.
