PROFILE

Summary

University educator for over 25 years, specialising in design technology, additive manufacturing and product development.

Co-editor of the Rapid Prototyping Journal, a Q1 journal in mechanical and manufacturing.

Compiled 2 research texts in Rapid Prototyping by John Wiley

Co-author of Additive Manufacturing Technologies by Springer, which is a standard text for anyone trying to learn about 3D Printing

Co-founder of the Global Alliance of Rapid Prototyping Associations, which had 34 member country organisations at its peak

Published over 200 academic papers that have been cited on Google Scholar over 14,000 times

Editorial advisory board member for 3 international journals as well as reviewer for at least 50 more

Member of organsing committee for more than 25 international conferences, at least 8 of them as chairman or similar.

Regular keynote speaker on 3D Printing and Design Technology in Education

Specialties: Well-known researcher in additive manufacturing, more commonly known as 3D Printing. Experience in developing new applications like multi-material systems, micro-RP, and tissue engineering.

Significant interests in virtual prototyping, focusing on medical systems using haptic interfaces.

Developing a secondary reputation in the field of rehabilitative engineering and assistive technology.

Organised more conferences and workshops than I can remember and helped a number of countries to develop 3D printing associations and a number of companies to implement 3D Printing within their organisations.
