Bekiroglu received his B.S. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Karadeniz Technical University, Trabzon in 2005, the M.S. degree from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Northeastern University, Boston, MA, USA, in 2010, and the Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, USA, in 2015. He also has minor Ph.D. degree from Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, USA, in 2015. After graduation, in August 2015, He was appointed as a postdoctoral researcher in the Methodology Center at Pennsylvania State University until 2016. Then He worked for Control Engineering Laboratory at Nanyang Technology University. In this center, He worked on Scalable and Smart Building Energy Management Systems. In this project, He developed a real-time model identification algorithm to identify the thermal model of rooms and model-based control strategies for HVAC systems to improve the energy saving. Now He is an assistant prof. at the Department of Electrical Engineering Technology, SUNY Polytechnic Institute.
His research interests include the broad interface of system identification, model predictive control, optimization, robust optimization, mechatronics, building automation, signal processing, predictive analytics and robust control. He is mainly working on developing computationally efficient system identification algorithm for big, noisy and incomplete datasets. He is also interested in developing smart, robust and adaptive personal treatment for health-related problems. He is a member of the IEEE.
