Dr Mehmet Yavuz

Postdoctoral Research Associate



I obtained my B.Sc. in Mathematics (2009) at the Bulent Ecevit University, my M.Sc. (2012) and Ph.D. (2016) degrees in Applied Mathematics at the Balikesir University in Turkey. In December 2012, I joined the Necmettin Erbakan University, Turkey as a lecturer. As of February 2018, I became an Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics at the Necmettin Erbakan University.

I joined University of Exeter in September 2019 as a post-doctoral researcher under supervision Prof. Dr. Stuart Townley in the Department of Mathematics on the Penryn Campus.

My research interests lie in the area of fractional calculus and its applications, optimal control, adaptive and robust control, chaos and bifurcation analysis, dynamical systems, biological models, financial mathematics and numerical methods, ranging from theory to design to implementation. Also, I have been collaborating actively with researchers in several other disciplines and I would be pleased to study with those who are willing to make collaborations in these research fields.
