Ph.D. student
Research Interests: utilizing directed energy deposition to overcome limitations of traditional manufacturing technologies. Specifically, remanufacturing of steel and cast iron components and understanding the resultant material properties is of interest. I am also interested in developing in-situ monitoring technologies for additive manufacturing platforms.
