Brief Resume

Post Doctoral Study in the field of “Evaluation of the FSU Synthetic Superensemble Performance for Seasonal Forecasts over the Euro- Mediterranean Region”, Meteorology Department, Florida State University, 2004-2008.

Experience:
Assistant Professor, İstanbul Technical University, The Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronomic Science, Meteorology Department, 2009-
Research and Teaching Assistant, İstanbul Technical University, The Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronomic Science, Meteorology Department, 2008-2009.
Visiting researcher, Meteorology Department, Florida State University, 2004-2008.
Research and Teaching Assistant, İstanbul Technical University, The Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronomic Science, Meteorology Department, 1994-2004.

Research Interests :
Areas of special research interests are in atmospheric variability and predictability. She works with a variety of Numerical Weather Models to understand atmospheric variations from diurnal, intra-seasonal to interannual time scales. These numerical tools include Meso Scale Atmospheric Models, Atmospheric General Circulation Models and Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Models.
Dr. Sirdas also has a wide range of interests that include WRF/ARW, FSU Synthetic Superensemble Model, Hydrological Modeling, HEC-HMS, Physics of Precipitation and Clouds, Precipitation analyze and forecast, Hydrometeorology, Drought, Flood Forecast, Hydrology, General  Atmospheric Circulations, Short term Wind Forecast etc.
