Ton Bor is an associate professor in the Production Technology chair of the Engineering Technology faculty. He received his master degree on Materials Science with honors in 1994 on the topic of solid-state welding of ceramics in the Welding Technology group (prof. G. den Ouden) of the Technical University of Delft. Then, he continued at this university with a PhD in the sections Physical Chemistry of the Solid State (prof. E.J. Mittemeijer) and Micromechanics of Materials (prof. E. van der Giessen) on strain fields in crystalline solids. After completion of the PhD in 2000, he continued his stay in both sections with a post-doctoral research. Then, he moved for two years to Malvern/Panalytical in Almelo to work as an X-ray diffraction specialist. In 2004 he started as an assistant professor in the Production Technology chair of Remko Akkerman. His research interest covers various areas including fiber reinforced composite materials, X-ray and mechanical analysis of crystalline materials, microstructural modeling of metals and alloys, and solid-state additive manufacturing of high strength aluminium and magnesium alloys (FSEAM).Teaching activities include various courses and projects on Materials Science in the Mechanical Engineering bachelor and master. Furthermore, he is involved with the interdisciplinary master Materials Science and Engineering.
