Ömer Faruk Bodur holds Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Boğaziçi University. His main focus during his undergraduate study was Computational Physics. He holds Master of Science degree in Geophysics from Boğaziçi University, Kandilli Observatory and Earthquake Research Institute.
He is the recipient of ARC-ITRH Basin Genesis Hub PhD scholarship, and currently a member of EarthByte Research Group, School of Geosciences at The University of Sydney.
Ömer Faruk Bodur investigates the interaction between lithosphere and mantle flow in passive margins. His work includes conducting 2-D and 3-D thermo-mechanical numerical models by using Underworld, and creating mathematical/physical models for this interaction with a specific focus on dynamic topography, edge driven convection, and instability of the deep lithospheric mantle. The second phase of his work will include coupling the numerical models with a surface modeling code (Badlands) in order to understand the interplay between surface processes and deep mantle.
His other interests include dynamics of burial and exhumation of crustal rocks. In collaboration with Assoc. Prof. Oğuz Göğüş from Istanbul Technical University, he has been performing numerical models to investigate the process of High Pressure – Low Temperature exhumation prevalent in Afyon and Tavşanlı Zone of Western Anatolia. He also has interest in ophiolite emplacement and intra-oceanic subduction processes.
