Doç. Dr. Mustafa Yücel 1982 yılında Bandırma’da doğmuştur. 2005 yılında ODTÜ Kimya Mühendisliği Bölümü'nden lisans derecesini, Felsefe Bölümü'nden de Bilim Felsefesi yandal derecesini almıştır. 2005-2010 arasında ABD’de Delaware Üniversitesi’nde Oşinografi doktorasını Prof. George Luther’in danışmanlığında tamamlamıştır. Mustafa Yücel 2010 ile 2012 arasında Fransa, UPMC-CNRS'de; 2013-2015 arasında da Almanya GEOMAR’da doktora sonrası araştırmalarda bulunmuştur. Nisan 2015’den beri ODTÜ Deniz Bilimleri Enstitüsü’nde öğretim üyesidir ve Aralık 2016’dan beri Enstitü Müdür Yardımcısı olarak da görev yapmaktadır. Ayrıca ODTÜ Ankara Kampusu Yer Sistem Bilimleri Anabilim Dalı’nda da dersler vermektedir. 

 

Dr Yücel'in araştırma ilgi alanları arasında okyanuslardaki biyojeokimyasal döngüler, derin deniz ekosistemleri, sürdürülebilir deniz ekonomisi ve deniz gözlem sistemleri geliştirmek sayılabilir. Doç. Dr. Mustafa Yücel’in 2021 itibari ile Nature, Nature Geoscience, Marine Chemistry başta olmak üzere doğa bilimlerinin önde gelen uluslararası dergilerinde 40’ın üzerinde yayını vardır. Dr. Yücel Pasifik, Atlantik, Akdeniz, Karadeniz, Marmara ve Baltık Denizi’de 14 adet uzun süreli araştırma seferlerine katılmış ve 5 kere Alvin (ABD) ve Nautile (Fransa) araştırma denizaltıları ile dalışlara katılmıştır. Makalelerine Google Akademik atıf indeksine göre 1500’e yakın atıf yapılmıştır. Dr  Yücel şu an ODTÜ'nün koordine ettiği 2 adet AB Ufuk 2020 araştırma konsorsiyumunun eş-koordinatörü olarak da  görev yapmakta ve 3 TÜBİTAK projesinde yer almaktadır. Mustafa Yücel aynı zamanda Türk Deniz Araştırmaları Vakfı TÜDAV Bilim Ödülü (2017), TÜBA-GEBİP ödülü (2018) ve BAGEP ödülü (2019) sahibidir.
