Necati Özkan is a Professor in the Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences
at Middle East Technical University, Turkey. His current research interests are in
rheological characterization of materials, preparation of nanoparticles, and
biodegradable polymers. He received his BE degree (Metallurgical Engineering) from
Istanbul Technical University (Turkey), his MSc degree (Materials Science and
Engineering) from Stanford University (USA), and his PhD degree (Chemical Engineering)
from Imperial College (UK). Prior to joining Middle East Technical University as an
academic staff, he was an academic staff at the University of Auckland, a research
associate at Imperial College (UK), a research assistant in Cavendish Laboratory at
Cambridge University (UK), and a scientist in Developmental Technologies BV (Holland).
Currently, he is the deputy director of Central Laboratory at Middle East Technical
