Mehmet Eylem Kirlangic received his PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Technische Universität Ilmenau, Germany, as a scholar of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in 2005. His B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees are respectively in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Biomedical Engineering of Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey. As a post-doc researcher, Dr. Kirlangic was with the Department of Stereotaxic and Functional Neurosurgery at the University Clinic Cologne, with the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the University Clinic RWTH Aachen, and with the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine – Molecular Organization of the Brain (INM-1) at the Research Centre Jülich in Germany. After having been in the industry with the Carmeq GmbH (renamed as CARIAD GmbH – a 100% subsidiary of the Volkswagen AG) and the Gegenbauer Services GmbH, he rejoined the BMTI as a research associate in summer 2020. He is currently working on DC-EEG measurements and low frequency response of dry EEG electrodes.


His research interests include biomedical signal and image processing, nonlinear dynamics and fractal modeling, and synergetics (i.e. coordination dynamics). He is specifically interested in the role of the so called „slow cortical potentials“ in integration and segragation of brain functions. He is a member of the German Electrical Engineers Association (VDE) and of the IEEE – Engineering in Biology and Medicine Society.
