Professor Demir’s research work concentrates on the mathematical modeling and numerical analysis of nonlinear, stochastic, statistical and noise phenomena that arise in physical, biological and engineered systems, a multi-disciplinary endeavor that lies at the intersection of electrical engineering, computer science, applied mathematics and the sciences.

Rigorous mathematical models based on first principles and analysis-based, efficient numerical simulation techniques are indispensable tools in forming a fundamental understanding of complex system behavior and in building computational prototypes for the design of various types of engineering systems, especially when nonlinear and stochastic phenomena co-exist and interfere with each other in determining the system behavior.
