Dr Suleyman Nalbant

Lecturer, University of Ulster

After graduating from Geophysical Engineering, Istanbul Technical University in 1987, Dr. Nalbant started his academic career as Research Assistant in Geophysics Department of Istanbul University in the same year. He was awarded a scholarship to carry out postgraduate studies in the United States after taking a nationwide competency examination in 1988. He gained his MSc degree from the University of Nevada, Reno, USA in 1990, and subsequently his PhD degree from Istanbul University in 1996. His PhD research was on stress triggering of earthquakes which occurred in Turkey. One of his papers published in 1998 indicated the Izmit area is vulnerable to a future damaging earthquake. This forecast was fulfilled dramatically with the magnitude 7.3, 1999 Izmit earthquake. In 2001 he left his position in Istanbul University and moved to Northern Ireland to take a post doc position in the University of Ulster. Currently, he works as a lecturer in the same university and serves as director of Marine Science course. Some parts of his research were featured in BBC documentaries ‘Horizon’ in 2003 and in ’10 Things You didn’t Know About Earthquakes’ in 2008.
