About


Can Özkan is a materials scientist, engineer and researcher. He is currently pursuing his PhD in Materials Science at the Delft University of Technology.
Can obtained his bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering (2018) with a specialisation in engineering materials and finite element modelling from Boğaziçi University, İstanbul, Turkey. Afterward, he continued his education in materials science with a master's in Materials Science & Engineering (2020) from TU Delft, Delft, the Netherlands. His master thesis studied the relationship between the microstructure and corrosion/passivation behavior of multi-phase high strength low alloy steels. After a brief period of working as a materials scientist in the industry, he joined the Corrosion Technology and Electrochemistry group in May 2021 as a PhD candidate. 
Can is currently working on self-healing coatings as an experimental scientist under the supervision of Dr. Peyman Taheri and Dr. Arjan Mol. The aim of his research is to improve the understanding of inhibition and self-healing mechanisms of coatings for corrosion protection with surface analytical and local electrochemical techniques at a nano/micro-scale.

When he is not working he uses his experimentation skills to brew the perfect cup of coffee.
