|Dr. Onan Demirel
Oregon State University
Dr. Onan Demirel is an assistant professor at the School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering at Oregon State University. His research focuses on how to incorporate human needs, abilities and limitations during early stages of the design process. He is interested in the development of multi-disciplinary design theory and methods to explore inter-dependencies and co-evolution of human element in engineering, natural and social systems.
Dr. Demirel’s work engages in human subject data collection and virtual simulations, and applies mechanical engineering design methods with industrial design techniques to include human needs, abilities and limitations early in the design process. Dr. Demirel received his PhD in 2015 from Purdue University in Industrial Engineering. As well his MS and BS in Industrial Engineering came from Purdue.
