Durmus Demir is working at the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey. He obtained his PhD in 1995 from the Middle East Technical University, Turkey, and afterwards he has worked as post-doctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania (1996-97), ICTP (1998-2000) and TPI, Minnesota (2000–03). He joined Physics Depart of Izmir Institute of Technology in 2003 and worked there until 2019. Demir has been working on hot topics in particle physics (naturalness, dark matter, CMS experiment at CERN), gravitation (emergent gravity, black holes, inflation), and quantum physics (quantum tunneling in physics and biology). His research is theoretical and phenomenological. He was Turkey’s national representative at CERN’s Strategy Council Meeting in 2006. He has received awards by a number of national institutions. He is the first Turkish-citizen researcher to win the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award (2007). He is an OIC-COMSTECH Distinguished Scholar (2021).
