Ozlem Kilic

Ozlem Kilic is the Dean of the College of Emerging and Collaborative Studies.  Before this, she was the Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs for the Tickle College of Engineering, Professor, and served as the Associate Dean of Engineering at the Catholic University of America.

Prior to that, she was an Electronics Engineer at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi MD where she managed Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Programs for the development of hybrid numerical electromagnetic tools to analyze and design electrically large structures, such as the Rotman lens. She has also designed, fabricated and tested various prototypes of Rotman lenses to achieve the broadband scanning capabilities needed for military antennas.

Kilic has over five years of industry experience at COMSAT Laboratories as a Senior Engineer and Program Manager with specialization in satellite communications, link modeling and analysis, and modeling, design and test of phased arrays and reflector antennas for satellite communications system.

Kilic’s research interests include antennas, wave propagation, satellite communications systems, microwave remote sensing, computational electromagnetics, high performance computing for electromagnetics and large problems, hardware acceleration, human vital sign detection with rf, wave propagation, radiation and scattering in random media, detection and tracking, compressive sensing implementation of em problems.
