 Erdem Ozturk

 Senior Technical Fellow

 e: e.ozturk@amrc.co.uk



Erdem Ozturk received the BSc. degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2003 from Middle East Technical University and MSc. degree in Mechatronics Engineering in 2005 from Sabanci University. He got the PhD. degree from the same department in 2010.  In the PhD thesis, he focused on modelling of mechanics and dynamics of multi-axis machining operations, namely, 5-axis ball-end milling, parallel turning and parallel milling processes. Since September 2010, he has been with the AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing  Research Centre) with Boeing. He is a Senior Technical Fellow leading the Machining Dynamics group. He is also a visiting faculty at the Global Production Engineering and Management MSc. programme at the Vietnamese German University in Ho Chi Minh.  He is  an Associate  member of CIRP (The International Academy For Production Engineering).
