Dr. Haijun Gong, Assistant Professor, completed his Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering in 2013 from University of Louisville. He has conducted research in additive manufacturing and 3D printing process development, property characterization of 3D printed metals, simulation and optimization of laser melting process, and physical phenomena in the selective laser melting and electron beam melting processes.
Dr. Kamran Kardel, Assistant Professor, received his Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering in 2016 from Auburn University. He has been the lead research assistant in the 3D-Printed Bio Surfaces (3D-PBS) Lab, an innovative and multidisciplinary research unit between Industrial and Systems Engineering and Biosystems Engineering. In this capacity, he has been conducting research at the intersection of additive manufacturing and custom-engineered substrata for bio-manufacturing applications (e.g. biofuels, bio-scaffolding, water treatment, etc.). In addition to the area above, he also has been pursuing the development of new contact force models, specifically the effect of roughness on collision between objects and the deformations during and after collisions for surfaces produced by 3D-printed polymers.
Dr. Hantang Qin received his bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Automation from Zhejiang University, China in 2012. He finished his Ph.D. study in Industrial Engineering with a focus in manufacturing at North Carolina State University in July, 2016. Dr. Qin‘s research areas include novel additive manufacturing processes, rapid prototyping methods and tools, and manufacturing systems based on electrohydrodynamic inkjet printing for flexible electronics and optoelectronics. His research interests include micro/nano fabrication, manufacturing, automation, CAD/CAM systems, 3D printing, multi-material and multi-scale fabrication based on additive manufacturing and topography optimization applications.
