Emre Koyuncu is an Assistant Professor at Istanbul Technical University, Department of Aeronautical Engineering. He has received his Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering from ITU in 2015. He was a visiting researcher at Boeing Research and Technology of Europe during 2013-2014, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Aero-Astro Department during 2014-2015. In his Ph.D. research, he has received SESAR WP-E HALA! Research Network Ph.D. fellowship. His research interests lie in the broad areas of aeronautics, robotics, navigation and control theory. In particular, he focuses on the implementation of optimization-based control and probability theory for the design and analysis of high-performance cyber-physical systems. The application areas of his research include agile unmanned aerial vehicles, flight trajectory optimization and planning, airborne conflict avoidance and resolution, high-level autonomy in air traffic control systems, flight management and decision support systems. Prof. Koyuncu is the director of Controls and Avionics Research Group in ITU Aerospace Research Center (ITU ARC). He is the recipient of a Boeing Early Career Grant in 2015 and he is a technical committee member of IEEE Control Systems Society on Hybrid Systems and IFAC TC 7.4 Transportation Systems.
