Hakan Ören (Assoc.Prof.Dr.) received M.Sc. and a Ph.D. degree from the Department of Civil Engineering/Geotechnics Program at Dokuz Eylul University (DEU) in 2001 and 2007, respectively. He was in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as a visiting scholar for one year. He worked on some projects related to hydraulic properties of geosynthetic clay liners and contaminant transport through permeable reactive barriers. He continued to work on these topics when he came back to Turkey. He has experience in laboratory experiments, especially on determining the hydraulic conductivity of geomaterials and geosynthetics using flexible and rigid wall permeameters. He worked also on laboratory determinations of volumetric shrinkage of compacted specimens using image processing methods. He is a full-time associate professor in the Department of Civil Engineering/Geotechnics at DEU since 2014. He was also involved in many local projects some of which were related to design of retaining walls and foundation systems and slope stability. He is currently a member of the Turkish Society of International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and the Turkish Chamber of International Geosynthetics Society (IGS).
