Brief Resume

Dr Kaya received all three of his degrees (BS 1984, MS 1987, and Ph.D. 1992) from Istanbul Technical University,  He joined the Mechanical Engineering Faculty of ITU as a research assistant then one year later transferred to Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics.  Since 1989 he is member of Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics where he holds the rank of Professor.  He had been in Construcciones Aeronauticas, SA, Spain at  Aeroelastic Design Department between 1992-1993. His PhD dissertation was on Discrete Vortex Method of Karman Vortex Street-Edge Interaction. Currently he is working on airplane and rotorcraft aeroelasticity, vibrations of elastic bodies, applied mathematics. Dr. Kaya has published over 80 technical papers in journals and conference proceedings.
