I have Ph.D. in aerospace engineering, and have academic experience and knowledge of engineering problems, teaching and research in national and international research institutes including Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, University of Cambridge, UK, Istanbul Technical University and Afyon Kocatepe University, Turkey.
I worked as research assistant, research associate, senior research associate, lecturer, Asst.Prof, Assoc.Prof., Prof.
I worked on dozens of national and international projects as principal investigator, researcher, consultant.
I evaluated hundreds of research projects on the behalf of several national and international institutions.
My particular interest is to develop scientific solution of engineering problems in areas of mechanical and aerospace engineering.
Techniques Dr. Omer Soykasap Uses:
I employ analytical, numerical and experimental techniques depending on the problem type; numerical optimization using genetic algorithm, simulation annealing, ant colony optimization, particle swarm, finite element analyses.
