Over and above, Professor Simsek continues to work as a referee and editor in many different national and international journals. Professor Simsek advises more than 30 graduate and doctoral students and continues to increase intensively. He provides trainings in many countries with the Erasmus exchange program and the Mevlana exchange program. As a Visiting Professor, Professor Simsek gives trainings and scientific studies in many countries. More than 300 articles and book chapters have been published, and he continues to work on these subjects either alone, either with students or with other international distinguished scientists. Professor Simsek has participated in more than 120 international symposiums and conferences and presented oral presentations in almost every part of the world and in most of the countries, despite the pandemic, he continues to intensify these oral presentations. In addition to these, Professor Simsek has organized many special workshops and has made very important contributions to many workshops and continues to do so. Professor Simsek has devoted his life to mathematics, and his only notable hobby is listening, studying mathematics or exploring new results. In this way, he has made it a philosophy of life that he is very peaceful and can do much more useful work for humanity. In conclusion, life is beautiful and meaningful doing and teaching math; for this purpose, it continues on its way tirelessly. With this philosophy of mathematics, Professor Simsek gave his two precious and beloved daughters, Associate Professor Dr. Burcin Simsek (Probability, Statistics and Biostatistics and their applications in medicine and other sciences) and Dr. Buket Simsek (Probability, Statistics and Biostatistics and their applications in medicine and engineering) has also chosen him as a colleague in different fields. He gained very deep knowledge from these two precious daughters. It is worth mentioning that the source of these successes is the tremendous and unforgettable support of his precious wife, Saniye Simsek. Professor Simsek sincerely believe that he will serve for many more years, and write more articles and books, thanks to the support and love of his family, whom he loves very much, the respect and support of his very valuable students, and all his distinguished friends around the world with whom Professor Simsek has collaborated and written articles.
