In my research group, we focus on developing process-driven solutions for additive manufacturing of next-generation materials, such as alloys containing rare-earth metals, high-performance metal alloys, and high-temperature materials. We use numerical, analytical, and experimental methods to establish the process-structure-property-performance relationships for these materials. The group works with a number of national and international collaborators from industry, government, and academia to offer advanced manufacturing solutions that can lead to clean technology, net-zero emissions, and industrial transformation in the Canadian industry. 

Research Interests:

  • Additive manufacturing of high-performance metal alloys
  • Additive manufacturing of alloys containing rare-earth metals
  • In-situ monitoring and control for additive manufacturing
  • Multiphysics modelling of manufacturing processes
  • Process-structure-property-performance relationships
  • Hybrid additive manufacturing
  • Design for additive manufacturing
