About Me

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Design, Production, and Management (DPM) at the University of Twente (UT). I earned my Ph.D. degree through a fellowship program from Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. My doctoral and Post-Doctoral research focused on Laser and Additive Manufacturing of Shape Memory Materials as well as the experimental and modeling processes (e.g. FEM and ANN modeling). My research interests are directed toward

  • Additive Manufacturing
  • 3D/4D Printing
  • Smart materials and structures
  • Shape memory materials


Engineering & Materials Science
3d Printers
Laser Beam Welding
