Biography

Dr. Derya Deniz is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Ozyegin University.  She graduated from Middle East Technical University with her B.S in Civil Engineering. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In her doctoral dissertation, she worked on seismic risk assessment of structural collapse of building frames. After completion of her Ph.D. study, she joined the University of Colorado, Boulder to work as a research associate for a year on a federally funded project to assess flood damage of several structures that were affected by the 2013 Colorado floods. She then held a postdoctoral fellow position for two years at Colorado State University and worked at the Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience Planning to develop a methodology for community loss and resilience models against disasters. She has research interests in community resilience, resilient and sustainable building design, disaster mitigation and post-disaster recovery, earthquake engineering, structural collapse modeling, flood loss analysis, hazard-impact modeling, and structural risk and reliability.
