Dr Hasan Özdemir received his B.A. degree in Geography in 2000, his MSc. degree in Physical Geography in 2002 and his PhD degree in Physical Geography from the Istanbul University in 2007 on “Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) Based Flood and Landslide Risk Analysis”. During the PhD, he also attended to “GeoHazard” course at the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS-India), the “MultiRisk” course at Bonn University (Germany) and the “Study and Management of Geological Risks” course in CERG (University of Geneva-Switzerland). He has then appointed to the position of Assistant Professor at Istanbul University in 2009. He had a post-doctorate in the School of Geographical Sciences at the Bristol University (UK) on “evaluating scale and roughness effect in urban flood modelling using terrestrial LiDAR data” with the TUBITAK foundation. He is now a Professor in the Physical Geography Division of Bursa Uludag University. He has devoted most of his research to GIS and RS based rainfall-runoff modelling, flood hazard and risk, and geomorphometric analysis of river basins on different data and scales.
