Zeynep Celik-Butler received dual B.S. degrees in electrical engineering and physics from Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey, in 1982. She received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering in 1984 and 1987, respectively, from the University of Rochester. She was an IBM Pre-doctoral Fellow from 1983 to 1984, and an Eastman Kodak Pre-doctoral Fellow from 1985 to 1987. She joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at Southern Methodist University in 1987 as an Assistant Professor; was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 1993. Dr. Celik-Butler was the holder of J. Lindsay Embrey Trustee Assistant Professorship from 1990 to 1993. She served as the Assistant Dean of Graduate Studies and Research from 1996 to 1999. She is currently a Professor of Electrical Engineering. She served in various technical committees including 1988, 1989 IEEE-IEDM's and Annual Symposia on Electronic Materials, Processing and Characterization (1989 - 1992) and International Conference on Noise in Physical Systems and 1/f Fluctuations (1993, 1999, 2001). She was the General Chair of TEXMEMS II Workshop. She is currently the technical editor for Fluctuation and Noise Letters. She has received several awards including the IEEE-Dallas Section Electron Devices Society Outstanding Service Awards (1995, 1997), IEEE - Electron Devices Society, Service Recognition Award (1995), Outstanding Electrical Engineering Graduate Faculty Awards (1996, 1997, 2001), and Southern Methodist University Sigma Xi Research Award (1997). Her research interests include microelectromechanical systems, infrared detectors, noise in semiconductor and superconductor devices, and high Tc-superconductivity. She has four patents, four book chapters, and over 100 journal and conference publications in these fields. Dr.Celik-Butler is a senior member of IEEE, member of Eta Kappa Nu, and the American Physical Society. She is a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE-Electron Devices Society.
