Dr. Erkmen has received his Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering in 1999 and M.A.Sc degree in Structural Engineering in 2001 both from Istanbul Technical University. He has received his Ph.D. degree in Structural Engineering in 2006 from University of Ottawa. He has worked as a Research Associate from 2007 until 2010 at University of New South Wales. From 2010 to 2018, he has worked at University of Technology Sydney as a Lecturer and later as a Senior Lecturer. He has joined the Department of Building Civil and Environmental Engineering at Concordia University as an Assistant Professor in 2019.


Research activities

Dr. Erkmen's research interest is in the area of computational mechanics with particular emphasis on the analysis of structures including buildings, bridges and pipelines. The goal of his research is to develop efficient and accurate numerical methods, theories and principles to predict the structural behavior under various conditions concerned with large deformations, time-dependent and nonlinear material behavior, dynamic effects and collapse.


Teaching activities

Dr. Erkmen teaches courses that cover the areas of computational and continuum mechanics, structural stability and dynamics, variational methods and numerical techniques.
