About the Speaker:

Dr. Murat Demirer is currently a faculty member at Işık University Biomedical Engineering Program and part-time faculty member at Üsküdar University’s cyber security program. Dr. Demirer received his undergraduate degree from Kocaeli State Architecture Engineering Academy in 1980 and his Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Istanbul Technical University in 1982. He also holds a PhD in biomedical engineering from Boğaziçi University. During his doctorate, he completed his thesis by working at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He also completed the 1-year Certification Program at Ohio State University Biomedical Engineering Department in 1993-1994. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher in biomedical engineering at the University of Memphis between 2002-2005. Between these years, Dr. Demirer first worked on computational modeling in cardiac electrophysiology and then on the spacecraft project sent to Mars by NASA, which started in 2003, and worked on developing mathematical algorithms for autonomous systems with the help of brain dynamics models.

Dr. Murat Demirer worked as an Associate Professor at Little Rock Arkansas University Computer Science Department in the 2007-2008 academic year. He worked in the US Department of Defense project, the Polymorphic Encryption Development Project. He later became a research associate professor at the Department of Computer Science and Intelligent Systems Institute at the University of Memphis in the US Air Force Project in the 2008-2009 academic year. He worked in the Bionic Eye and Complex Warfare Systems Project to develop innovative concepts and smart solutions for dynamically changing complex war scenarios. Demirer has over 30 years of academic research experience in the design, analysis and control of advanced signal processing and smart systems. His research interests include spatio-temporal dynamics of neural processes, large-scale neural networks, chaos theory, computational intelligence methods for information acquisition, and autonomous decision making in biological and artificial systems. He has published articles in international journals and some peer-reviewed conference proceedings. Demirer is still working to understand the brain’s algorithms and reveal mathematical models. He explores the applications of these algorithms to machine learning problems. Dr. Demirer uses mathematical theories from a wide variety of disciplines, including stochastics, geometry, engineering, and physics, in his research, and develops biomarkers for a variety of psychiatric diseases. He is currently lecturing on signal processing, medical imaging, data analysis in intensive care, and advanced cryptography graduate courses in the cybersecurity program.
