My name is Dr. Ibrahim Beklan Kucukdemiral and I am a Reader in the Department of Applied Science at the School of Computing, Engineering, and Built Environment at Glasgow Caledonian University. I hold the title of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) in the UK and a member of IFAC, as well as a senior member of IEEE. Currently, I am serving as the Vice Chair of the IEEE Control Systems Chapter of the UK & Ireland Section, and he also holding the position of Conference Coordinator Officer for the IEEE UK & Ireland Section.

I earned my BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Yildiz Technical University(YTU) in 1997, 1999, and 2002, respectively. Then I worked as a Research and Teaching Assistant at YTU from 1998 to 2004 and subsequently held positions as an Assistant Professor (2004-2010), Associate Professor (2010-2015), and Full Professor (2015-2017) at the same university.

My research interests encompass a wide range of topics, including robust, optimal, and adaptive control systems, embedded systems, electronic circuits and devices, mechatronics, digital wireless communication systems, data acquisition measurement, sensor technologies, and some automotive applications of control theory. I am also a member of the editorial board of Ocean Engineering and the Turkish Journal of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences (SCI-E) and serve as the module leader for several modules, including Industrial Practice, Control Systems I, Control Systems II, Model Predictive Control, and Control & Instrumentation Systems at the African Leadership College in Mauritius. Over the years, I have taught approximately 20 different modules at both graduate and undergraduate levels at various universities, including Yildiz Technical University in Istanbul, Glasgow Caledonian University in Glasgow, the Turkish Airforce Academy in Istanbul, and the University of Sharjah in the UAE.
