Associate Professor

May 2013 - Oct 2016 (3 years)

I served as the Department Chair in Dept. of Meteorology. In the meanwhile, I got experienced in writing project proposals and coordinated the following national/international projects: • ‘METEOSAT Second Generation fire product enhancement using regionalized thresholds’. • ‘Building a satellite based atmospheric products database and cloudiness atlas generation ’. • ‘Validation of the EUMETSAT (European Meteorological Satellites) satellite soil moisture products over Turkey'

Assistant Professor

Nov 2011 - May 2013 (1 year)

I was the founding Department Chair in Department of Meteorology. During this period, I focused mainly on the fulfillment of the academical and technical background of the department. I also lectured the following two classes: • ‘Computer Programming in MATLAB’ • ‘Meteorological Observations and Measurement Techniques’

Research Scientist

Aug 2005 - Nov 2011 (6 years)

I was the coordinator of the following projects: • ‘Quality assurance/control system design for the Synoptic Observing Sites' observation’ • ‘Quality assurance/control system design for the Automated Weather Observing Sites (AWOS) observations’ I was also a researcher in EUMETSAT (European Meteorological Satellites) ‘Hydrological Satellite Application Facility (H-SAF) Project’ dedicated to satellite-derived product generation for operational hydrology and water management.

Research Assistant

Jun 2003 - Jun 2005 (2 years)

During my PhD degree study in Texas Tech University, I was a Research Assistant in "West Texas Mesonet Project". My responsibility in this project is to write codes to perform Quality Assurance/Quality Control tests for the West Texas Mesonet parameters and provide the necessary flag information.
