Dr. Sez Atamturktur

Founded in 2010 by Dr. Sez Atamturktur, the DAISE (Decision Analytics Integrating Simulations and Experiements) research group concentrates on the development, application, and dissemination of model validation and uncertainty quantification (MVUQ) methods. Our main emphasis is on structural dynamics applications and structural systems coupled with other domains. This web page includes information about our team, ongoing and past projects, publications, and courses taught by Dr. Atamturktur, who continues to head the group. We 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 also 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


Dr. Roland Platz from Darmstadt is visiting Clemson this week. He will be offering a short course titled "Controlling Uncertainty Via Smart System Technology" on February 16, 19, 20, and 21 from 3-5pm.  See the poster for Dr. Platz's course.

Who Should Join Our Team?

Members of the DAISE research group are committed to reaching their full potential as scholars and researchers. In everything we do, we support and challenge each other to learn and achieve more. Individuals 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 8 doctoral students for the duration of their studies (2015-2019) on topics related to model validation and uncertainty quantification. Interested students who are U.S. citizens are encouraged to contact Dr. Atamturktur. Click here for more information.
