Oğuz ERYILMAZ is a research associate at Marmara University, Faculty of Technology, Department of Textile Engineering in Istanbul, Turkey. He received his B.Sc. degree in Textile Engineering from Uludağ University in 2011, Bursa. He obtained his M.Sc. degree in Textile Technology Program of Textile Engineering from Marmara University in 2017. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Textile Engineering at Marmara University. Starting from October 2019, He is a guest research associate at RWTH Aachen University in ITA (Institut für Textiltechnik). His main research area is Textile-Reinforced Composites which comprise a textile form as 2D/3D braided, woven, and multiaxial fabrics. His specific research fields are:

Radial Braiding and Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) Technology for Composite Structures

Thermoset and Thermoplastic Composite Structures Used in Aircraft and Space

Natural Fiber Composite Application for Sustainable Transportation

His hobbies are mostly related to aviation. He has been one of the CTO's of Rocket Teams at Marmara University for 3 years. He has been making static model aircraft for 7 years. He is especially interested in commercial aircraft and fighter jet. Currently, there are 5 large body, 7 narrow-body, 7 fighter jets and 1 piston engine in his collection. He frequently visits aviation museums (Technik Museum Sinsheim, Dornier Museum Friedrichshafen, BMW Welt Museum, Turkish Air Force Museum Istanbul, etc.). Also, he enjoys watching Formula 1 races and investigating effects of composite technology to the F1 cars especially for flexi-rear wing and aeroelasticity of carbon composites.
