Fatih Olmez


Brief Introduction

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.

Research Interest

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.
