Dr. Olmez got his PhD in mathematics from The Ohio State University in the United States in April 2014. He worked at Ozyegin University in Turkey as a lecturer from September 2014 to June 2016 and joined INS as a postdoc in July 2016.
His broad research interest is to understand complex biological systems through stochastic modeling and analysis. His PhD dissertation involved modeling of the neuronal networks regulating sleep-wake transition dynamics in mammalian species and fitting power-law distributions to data sets which follow power-law on a bounded intervals. His recent research activities included development of a statistical tool to identify intermediate power laws and analysis of a competitive random graph model to study sleep-wake transition dynamics.
