Dr. Sez Atamturktur

Founded in 2010 by Dr. Sez Atamturktur, the DAISE (Decision Analytics Integrating Simulations and Experiments) research group concentrates on the development, application, and dissemination of model validation and uncertainty quantification (MVUQ) methods. Our main emphases are on structural dynamics applications and structural systems, but we do couple this research with other domains. This web page includes information about our current team, ongoing and past projects, publications, and courses taught by Dr. Atamturktur. Dr. Atamturktur continues to head the group, today. We also acknowledge the funding provided for our research by several federal agencies, including the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of the Interior, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory. We further acknowledge funding provided by industry organizations and partners, including the National Concrete Masonry Association and Vulcraft, Inc. If you are interested in learning more about our work, please contact Dr. Atamturktur at:

For those who work in the field of MVUQ, we encourage you to submit your scholarly articles to ASME's Journal of Verification, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification. We also encourage you take the time to visit the MVUQ technical division website to learn more about upcoming events. The technical division has a LinkedIn Group titled "Model Validation and Uncertainty Quantification Technical Division of IMAC." Anyone interested in MVUQ who would like to be involved in the technical division is invited to join our LinkedIn Group


CU-IDEAS Research Group is moving to The Pennsylvania State University, College of Engineering. 

Who Should Join Our Team?

Members of the DAISE research group are committed to reaching their full potential as scholars and researchers even beyond their experience at Clemson. In everything we do, we support and challenge each other to learn and achieve more than we thought possible. Students pursuing their Master's and/or Ph.D.'s with strong work ethics, a deep interest in learning, and enthusiasm for creating new knowledge are suitable candidates for our team. 



We look forward to hiring three doctoral students to contribute to a variety of externally funded projects on societal risk assessment.


Dr. Atamturktur is the Principal Investigator of a GAANN project that funds eight doctoral students for the duration of their studies (2018-2022) on topics related to model validation and uncertainty quantification. Interested students who are U.S. citizens are encouraged to contact Dr. Atamturktur. (THE LINK, HERE, IS BROKEN)-- IS THIS STILL AVAILABLE?
