My research interests stand broadly in the area of powder bed fusion additive manufacturing and high-temperature corrosion fatigue.
I am mainly interested to develop AM components with suitable microstructures desired in high-temperature environments that outperform the current state-of-the-art wrought and cast materials. This goal could be achieved if ongoing mechanisms and the effect of process parameters will be thoroughly understood.
Moreover, I am also interested to develop a fundamental understanding of the dependence of high-temperature behavior of AM components on their microstructure, which will lay a foundation for meeting the above objective. The focus will be on Ni-based superalloys manufactured by EB-, and L-PBF techniques, which have not been fully investigated yet. Thus, this goal will also contribute handsomely to the current level of knowledge in the field.
I am currently collaborating with several Swedish companies such as GKN Aerospace, Arcam-EBM (a GE Additive), and Quintus Technologies AB, as well as universities like Chalmers University (Sweden), and Linkoping University (Sweden), and Waterloo University (Canada).
I am the main coordinator of the "Additive Manufacturing Processes" course with 7,5 credits, for the Master’s programs in "Manufacturing Engineering" and "Metal Additive Manufacturing"
I have been the lecturer in several courses including:
1) Advanced Materials Science, 7,5 credits, Bachelor's and Master’s programs in Manufacturing Engineering
2) Advanced Manufacturing Processes, 7.5 credits, Master’s program in Manufacturing Engineering
3) Surface Technology 7.5 credits, Master’s program in Manufacturing Engineering
4) Additive manufacturing - Repair 2.5 credits
5) Additive manufacturing - Metallic materials, intensive course 2.5 credits
6) Additive manufacturing - Product and manufacturing aspects 2.5 credits
I am also the Director of the new 2-year Master's program in Metal Additive Manufacturing which will be offered in Fall 2021.
