Dr Ibrahim Beklan Kucukdemiral received the BSc, MSc and PhD degrees from Yildiz Technical University, Department of Electrical Engineering in 1997, 1999 and 2002. Between May 1998 – May 2004, he held the Research & Teaching Assistant position in Yildiz Technical University, Department of Electrical Engineering, Division of Control Systems. From 2004 to 2010 he served as an Assistant Professor and in 2010 he was awarded Associate Professorship by the Turkish Higher Education Council. From 2010 -2015, he served as an Associate Professor for the Department of Control and Automation Engineering at Yildiz Technical University and between October 2015 – January 2017 he conducted research as a full professor for the same department.
Ibrahim currently works at GCU in the School of Computing, Engineering and Built Environment, as a lecturer at the Department of Engineering. He is a member of IFAC Technical Committee on Robust Control, Linear Control Systems, Control Design, Distributed Parameter Systems and Automotive Control. He is also on the Editorial Board of Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences. He was the Proceedings Editor of the Joint IFAC Meeting 6th Symposium on System Structure and Control (SSSC2016) and 13th Workshop on Time Delay Systems (TDS2016). He is the (co)author of over 50 scientific papers in his research area and supervised 4 PhD students.
General research interests of Ibrahim B. Kucukdemiral lie within the broad domain of robust, optimal and adaptive control systems. His particular focuses are Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) based analysis and synthesis techniques for uncertain time-delay systems (TDS), Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) Systems, Convex Optimization and its Applications in Control and Gain Scheduling Control. His minor interests include embedded systems, electronics circuits and devices, mechatronics, machine intelligence, digital wireless communication systems, data acquisition measurement and sensor technologies and some automotive applications of control theory.
