Additive Manufacturing of Functional Polymer Composites
School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering seminar series
Friday, April 9
12:10 a.m. – 1 p.m. via Zoom
Functional polymer composites are a highly demanded class of materials with enormous applications in electronics, aerospace and defense, transportation, and energy segments. They offer unique combinations of characteristics, including high specific mechanical properties, tunable conductivity, permittivity, piezoresistivity, etc., that are unachievable, otherwise.This talk is devoted to the additive manufacturing (3D printing) of polymer composites and nanocomposites.
Amir Ameli is an assistant professor of plastics engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. His research interests encompass material design, process development, and characterization of multifunctional nanocomposites and bio-based polymeric systems. Prior to joining UMass Lowell, he served as an assistant professor of mechanical and materials engineering at WSU from 2015-2019.
