Öz Yilmaz received his B.S. in geology with geophysics option in 1970 from the University of Missouri-Rolla, his M.S. in geophysics in 1972 from Stanford University with research in rock physics and earthquake seismology and, after six years in the industry received his Ph.D in geophysics in 1979 from Stanford University, with research in exploration seismology.

During his 27-year career in the industry, Öz has worked in acquisition, processing, inversion, and interpretation of seismic data with Turkish Petroleum, Western Geophysical, Schlumberger Geco-Prakla, and Paradigm Geophysical. In October 2000, Öz founded Anatolian Geophysical, providing services in seismic data analysis and project management.

For his contributions to the science of geophysical exploration, Öz was honored by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists in 1991 with the Virgil Kauffman Gold Medal Award and by the European Association of Exploration Geoscientists in 1992 with the Conrad Schlumberger Award. He also was honored with a Special Commendation Award by the Istanbul Technical University in 1992. For his contributions to the geophysical profession in a global manner, his biography was included in Who’s Who in the World, 1998 edition.
