Research Interests

Derviş Can Vural is interested in systems where (1) disorder and (2) strong interactions plays an important role. He uses analytic and computational approaches to solve many-body problems in statistical mechanics, condensed matter physics, and theoretical biology. Research themes include complex networks, population genetics and evolution, disordered / soft materials, many-body quantum mechanics, inverse problems, reliability theory, swarms and active matter.
