BIOGRAPHY

Mr Erkan Caner Özkat is a PhD student at WMG department of the University of Warwick. He received his MSc. in Automotive Engineering from the University of Bath, UK in 2007. Currently, he has been working on the integration of multi-physics models and data mining approaches to develop a predictive model of the RLW joint with near-to-zero physical experiments. His major research interests are CAD and FEA modelling, and multi-physics simulation for product/process performance improvement.
