O. Ozgur Yildirim was born in Ankara, Turkey in 1983. He received the BS and MS degrees in electrical and electronics engineering from the Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara, Turkey, in 2004 and 2006, respectively. He is currently working towards the PhD degree in electrical engineering and applied physics at Harvard University.
Ozgur's research interests include ultrafast and RF integrated circuits and devices, soliton and nonlinear waves and their utilization in electronic circuits, and nanoscale and terahertz electronics. He has developed a reflection mode-locked soliton oscillator, which utilizes a nonlinear transmission line in a positive active feedback loop for self-generation of sharp electrical pulses. He is also working on the chaotic communication and its implementation in the microwave and millimeter-wave regimes.
Ozgur was the receipient of the 2009 Analog Devices Outstanding Student Designer Award.
