Kaveh Rahimzadeh Berenji is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Manufacturing Research Laboratory (MRL) at Sabanci University.

His current research work addresses the mechanics and dynamics of multi-axis machine tools. His focus mainly is on the mechanics and chatter stability of turn-milling operations. He also developed models to predict the stability of parallel turning and parallel turn-milling operations.

Kaveh has also carried out research work on Intelligent machining, fault detection, and diagnosis in machining operation based on machine learning and optimization of the high-speed spindles.
