Ozgur Ozcelik, Ph.D. has received his B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering in 1999, his M.Sc. degree in Structural Engineering in 2002 both from Dokuz Eylul University in Izmir, and his Ph.D. degree in September 2008 from University of California, San Diego. He has worked as a research assistant between 2002 and 2008 in University of California, San Diego; and since 2009 he is an assistant professor at Dokuz Eylul University in Civil Engineering Department.He has obtained his associate degree in 2014.
His research interests include operational modal analysis, structural health monitoring, shake table dynamics, shake table control, large scale shake table tests, structural dynamics, earthquake engineering, structural reliability and risk analysis, system identification of civil and mechanical structures, statistical and adaptive signal processing, finite element analysis and soil-foundation-structure interaction. He has been involved in many research projects ranging from evaluating earthquake performance of nonstructural elements, educational project about web-based bench-top shake table laboratory for aiding undergraduate structural dynamics and earthquake engineering courses, and retrofitting of existing structures. On this topic, a recent project has been completed in 2012 where approximately 10,000 reinforced concrete and masonry buildings have been assessed for evaluating their earthquake performance. He is the principle investigator of a TUBİTAK project where a new technique will be developed to predict the level of damage on reinforced concrete structures after an earthquake by estimating amount of damping at various damage states in these structures.
