Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr Tahsin Tezdogan is currently a Reader in Fluid-Structure Interactions in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME) at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Dr Tezdogan received his PhD degree in 2015 from Strathclyde from the same department, with his PhD thesis entitled, 'Potential Flow and CFD-Based Hydrodynamic Analyses of Mono- and Multi-Hull Vessels’.

Dr Tezdogan has a broad range of research interests, including CFD simulations of ship motions and resistance, the added resistance of ships due to waves, and the investigation of ship behaviour and performance in channels/canals. He worked on a number of internationally collaborated Newton Fund and Global Challenges projects. Currently, Dr Tezdogan is working on the EU-funded VENTuRE, MarLEM and GATERS projects as an investigator.

To date, Dr Tezdogan has published more than 50 papers in highly ranked journals and has presented his research at several international conferences and workshops. In addition to this, Dr Tezdogan has acted as guest editors for an Ocean Engineering Special Issue on ‘CFD Applications in Ship and Offshore Structures’ and for an Applied Ocean Research Special Issue on 'Resistance, seakeeping and manoeuvrability of ships in restricted waters'. In April 2017 he was appointed as a Deputy Editor for Ocean Engineering journal. In September 2017, Dr Tezdogan was appointed to an ITTC Specialist Committee on Combined CFD/EFD Methods for a duration of four years. More recently he has been appointed to ITTC's Quality Systems Group for three years. He is also a member of RINA and IMarEST. Dr Tezdogan has been a Professional Affairs and Education Committee (PAEC) member of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) since 30 May 2019. The PAEC is responsible for setting IMarEST’s academic and professional development standards, making the final decisions regarding the accreditation of academic courses and graduate training programmes and the granting of IMarEST recognition for relevant CPD courses.

Dr Tezdogan has also been selected as one of the 20 members of the UK Shipbuilding Skills Taskforce. UK Shipbuilding Skills Taskforce (UKSST) will form a partnership between government, industry, training providers and trade representative bodies. The Taskforce will support the development and implementation of a future-focused skills strategy for shipbuilding. Working closely with the Ministry of Defence (MoD), the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Department for Transport (DfT), it will build a picture of the industry’s skills needs and provide solutions to skills shortages, particularly those related to new and emerging technologies. 

Dr Tezdogan has also been selected as a Reviewer or an Evaluator for some EU- Horizon 2020 and Newton Fund calls. More recently he was invited to evaluate some proposals for a European country's research council, as a member of their engineering panel. Dr Tezdogan was a local organising committee member for the recent OMAE 2019 conference, in addition to being a member of the OMAE short course committee. He also delivered a short course for OMAE 2019 in June 2019.

Dr Tezdogan has served on different committees at Strathclyde at Departmental, Faculty and University levels. He is currently a member of University Senate and Senate Discipline Committee. He is also a member of the Faculty Academic Committee in his capacity of Faculty-level Academic Peer Reviewer.
