Professor Vedat Toğan
Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Construction Engineering, Management & Innovation
Professor Togan, started his research work on the optimization of 2D and 3D structural systems using genetic algorithms, leading to an MSc degree. He also worked on new techniques in order to enhance the performance of the genetic algorithms. Then he started his PhD research work related to the optimization of the structural system under uncertainties. Having visited Ruhr University of Bochum, Germany and Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, he has made more experience related to his PhD research.
He obtained his PhD degree from Karadeniz Technical University in 2009 and he has continued the research works on construction and project management, BIM, occupational health and safety, performance analyses of building design, optimization methods based on meta-heuristics, and uncertainty analysis.
