Dr Sinan Acikgoz
Dr Sinan Acikgoz graduated with high honors in Civil Engineering from Middle East Technical University in 2010. He then pursued a PhD in earthquake engineering at Trinity College, Cambridge. His thesis examined the use of rocking mechanisms for protecting the structures from violent earthquakes. He carried out the experimental part of his research at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Currently, Sinan is involved in developing and evaluating site applications of emerging sensor technologies with the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction at the University of Cambridge. The use of fibre optics, wireless networks and terrestrial laser scanners for structural health monitoring is explored in his research.
