Dr. Igal Bilik received B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Ben- Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva, Israel, in 1997, 2003, and 2006, respectively. During 2006–2008,
he was a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University, Durham, NC. During 2008-2011, he has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. During 2011-2019, he was a Staff Researcher at GM Advanced Technical Center, Israel, leading automotive radar technology development. Between 2019-2020 he was leading Smart Sensing and Vision Group at GM R&D, where he was responsible on development state-of-art automotive radar, lidar and computer vision technologies. Since Oct. 2020, Dr. Bilik is an Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Since 2020, he is a member of IEEE AESS Radar Systems Panel and Chair of Civilian Radar Committee. Dr. Bilik is an Acting Officer of IEEE Vehicular Technology Chapter, Israel, and Chair of Autonomous and Connected Transportation Committee, Israeli Center for Smart Mobility Research. Dr. Bilik has more than 180 patent inventions, authored more than 60 peer-reviewed academic publications, received the Best Student Paper Awards at IEEE RADAR 2005 and IEEE RADAR 2006 Conferences, Student Paper Award in the 2006 IEEE 24th Convention of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in Israel, and the GM Product Excellence Recognition in 2017. Dr. Bilik was a Guest Associate Editor in IEEE J. of Selected Topics in Signal Processing, “Automotive Radar Processing,” 2020, co-organizing IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems Special Section
