Berzah Yavuzyegit is a materials scientist specializing in the mechanical behaviour of a diverse range of materials, encompassing both metals and non-metallic substances. With expertise in various mechanical tests such as tensile and bending, advanced electron microscopy techniques, and the design of testing rigs, he delves into the microstructures and deformation mechanisms of materials under different conditions, including corrosive environments and varying temperatures. Proficient in programming with Python and Matlab, Yavuzyegit excels in advanced techniques such as X-ray Computed Tomography for 3D material characterization and electron microscopy, including SE, BSE, and EBSD, for detailed analysis. Holding a Ph.D. in Mechanics of Materials from the University of Manchester, his research focused on comprehending the deformation mechanisms of magnesium alloys. Beyond research, Yavuzyegit has practical experience in biomaterials, specifically exploring the mechanical and corrosion behaviour of biodegradable magnesium implants.
My current focus is on biomaterials, specifically studying microscale deformation mechanisms. Utilizing my expertise in mechanical tests, advanced electron microscopy, and testing rig design, I'm investigating the fatigue behavior of metals, with a particular emphasis on biomaterials. Drawing from my experience in exploring the mechanical and corrosion behavior of biodegradable magnesium implants, my ongoing work aims to provide insights into the fatigue dynamics of metallic biomaterials, contributing to a deeper understanding of material behavior in practical applications.
