Xiayun Zhao

Department of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science
PhD, Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
Summary:

Dr. Zhao’s interdisciplinary background cultivates her research interest in integrating precision engineering and additive manufacturing to realize the vision of advanced manufacturing. Her research lab, the ZIP-AM (ZXY Intelligent Precision Additive Manufacturing) Laboratory, aims to lead the nascent and significant area of “Measurement Science and Control Technologies for Additive Manufacturing”. The “zippers” (nickname for the ZIP-AM lab members) are motivated to bridge the critical gaps within and between two key research lines in additive manufacturing (AM): (1) process-structure-property and (2) modeling-measurement-control. To address the grand challenges that confront AM, Dr. Zhao’s team studies novel sensors, measurement systems, control strategies, along with high-fidelity process models, to form closed-loop systems for improving the accuracy and precision of various AM processes.

To fulfill AM’s potentials in industry applications, in addition to a substantial research on enhancing the existing AM processes capabilities, Dr. Zhao also dedicates herself to developing innovative manufacturing methodologies and systems by exploring fundamental sciences and by embracing advanced technologies. Overall speaking, with a key research thrust to develop smart precision AM systems, Dr. Zhao and her lab study various advanced manufacturing technologies (including 3D/4D/Bio/Hybrid Printing) for fabricating multi-scale, multi-material and multi-functional structures and systems in demanding applications.
