Olgica Milenkovic received her MS in Mathematics and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2001 and 2002, respectively. From 2002 to 2006, she was with the faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder. In 2007, she joined the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Her research interests are in bioinformatics, coding theory, compressive sensing and social sciences. Olgica Milenkovic is a recipient of the NSF Career Award and the DARPA Young Faculty Award. In 2012 she was named a Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) Associate, and in 2013 she received the Willett scholarship. From 2006, she served on the editorial board for the journals Transactions on Communication, Transactions on Signal Processing and Transactions on Information Theory.
Top-three paper award, WCMB'08, Leipzig, Germany (2008); NSF Career Award (2007); Runner-up for best paper award (honorable mention), ICC'06, Istanbul, Turkey (2006).
