Tamay M. Özgökmen



I graduated from Istanbul Lisesi in 1983, obtained my B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Bosphorus University in Istanbul/Turkey in 1988, an M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Miami in 1990, and a Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences from Dartmouth College in 1995.

Research Interests

My research interest centers around the investigation of multi-scale oceanic flows using non-hydrostatic numerical models and Lagrangian methods.

Favorite Statements of Scientific Wisdom

"Predicton is very difficult, especially for the future" by Niels Bohr.

"Never accept anything as true unless it clearly is. Divide every difficult problem into small parts, and solve the problem by attacking these parts. Always proceed from simple to complex, looking for patterns and order. Be as complete and thorough as possible, so that nothing is missed" by Descardes.
