May 2013 - Oct 2016 (3 years, 5 months)
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'
Ondokuz Mayıs University, Dept. of Meteorology, Samsun, Turkey
Nov 2011 - May 2013 (1 year, 6 months)
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’
Turkish State Meteorological Service, Ankara, Turkey
Aug 2005 - Nov 2011 (6 years, 3 months)
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.
