overview

Myresearch interests focus on both subtractive and additive manufacturing fields. The subtractive topics include advanced machining processes, material removal mechanics and design of surgical tools. The additive topics include 3D printing of UV-curable silicones, composites and process improvements of fuse deposition modeling (FDM).
