My research interests and projects over the years

  • Rapid Manufacturing (including rapid prototyping, additive manufacturing, machining, design for changeovers, inspection, etc.)
  • Product Design for Manufacturing
  • Process Planning and Manufacturing Systems Design
  • Design Recovery (Reverse engineering the form and function intelligently)
  • Cognitive Ergonomics related to complexity (Product, Process & Operations perspectives for effective systems design)
  • Bio-Mechanics - design and fabrication
