About Me

Current CV

I am an Associate Professor of the Mechanical Engineering Department (MEE), at the University of Maine(UMaine), Orono, ME. Currently, I am serving as an editorial board member for Scientific Report. I earned my Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the University at Buffalo (SUNY), New York.

My research is centered around advanced manufacturing science, with a particular emphasis on data-driven design, artificial intelligence-powered material development, the progress of manufacturing processes, and the integration of digitization. In my ‘Digital Manufacturing’ laboratory, we focused into the design, materials, and their processing behavior across micro, meso, and macro scales. Through the generation, collection, and analysis of both experimental and computational data, we aim to achieve a profound understanding of engineering principles, performance and functionality. The goal is to leverage this knowledge to democratize advanced manufacturing processes and systems, thereby revolutionizing the human-machine synergies in manufacturing engineering.
