Serkan Kiranyaz (Senior Member, IEEE) is a Professor with Qatar University, Doha, Qatar. He published two books, five book chapters, more than 80 journal articles in high impact journals, and 100 articles in international conferences. He made contributions on evolutionary optimization, machine learning, bio-signal analysis, computer vision with applications to recognition, classification, and signal processing. He has coauthored the articles which have nominated or received the “Best Paper Award” in ICIP 2013, ICPR 2014, ICIP 2015, and IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (TSP) 2018. He had the most-popular articles in the years 2010 and 2016, and most-cited article in 2018 in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering. From 2010 to 2015, he authored the 4th most-cited article of the Neural Networks journal. His research team has won the second and first places in PhysioNet Grand Challenges 2016 and 2017, among 48 and 75 international teams, respectively. His theoretical contributions to advance the current state of the art in modeling and representation, targeting high long-term impact, while algorithmic, system level design and implementation issues target medium and long-term challenges for the next five to ten years. He in particular aims at investigating scientific questions and inventing cutting edge solutions in “personalized biomedicine” which is in one of the most dynamic areas where science combines with technology to produce efficient signal and information processing systems.,Prof. Kiranyaz received the “Research Excellence Award” and the “Merit Award” of Qatar University in 2019.(Based on document published on 19 April 2021)
