Research Areas

Advanced Manufacturing:

Additive Manufacturing Technology

Additive Manufacturing (AM) allows us to take a computer-aided design of an object and quickly create a three-dimensional model or mold by precisely building up layers of material. It's an exciting technology that opens new worlds of research limited only by the imagination.

 3D Structural Manufacturing

Our research team has been leading the convergence of AM and Direct Printing (DP) technologies over the past decade for the development of 3D Structural Electronics multi-material, heterogeneous, electronic structures exhibiting non-conventional 3D component placement and conductor routing. These efforts have resulted in numerous publications, patents, and more recently, a spin-off company that is focusing on applications of importance to the intelligence community and national defense.
