Müge Kuleli

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

TEL: 07472513722


Müge graduated from the Istanbul Technical University in 2009 and 2011 with a BSc in Civil and an MSc in Structural Engineering. She then joined the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign as a graduate research assistant for two years, where she worked on vertical ground motion effects on long-span cable-stayed bridges. Before joining the University of Tokyo in 2014, she worked at Miyamoto International, Istanbul office as a structural engineer designing seismic-base isolation systems.

She obtained her PhD in the Bridge&Structure Laboratory at the University of Tokyo in 2018 with the Monbukagakusho scholarship and her thesis “Stiffness condition assessment of bridge lateral resisting systems with unscented Kalman filter using seismic acceleration response measurements”. She continued work on applied structural health monitoring and condition assessment of infrastructure using emerging sensor technologies, machine learning algorithms, and data assimilation techniques during her postdoctoral assignments.

Müge joined the civil and offshore group in October 2019.
