Background and activities


Dr. Gedikli is a postdoctoral research associate within the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. He joined the department in Fall 2017. Prior to his appointment, he completed his doctorate in Ocean Engineering at the University of Rhode Island.

Dr. Gedikli's doctoral research focused on dynamic response and active control of flexible cylindrical structures undergoing vortex-induced vibrations. His current research interests include reduced order modelling (ROM), and nonlinear system identification with applications to offshore wind farms that are prone to ice induced vibrations.
