Graduate Student Researchers

KAZI OWAIS AHMED

PhD Candidate
BS: New York University Abu Dhabi, 2020

Interests in Engineering:

Computer-Aided Design, and Additive Manufacturing

Current Lab Activity:

Kazi is currently working on developing an algorithm that can autodetect a part geometry and suggest which manufacturing method, i.e., subtractive, additive, or hybrid, would be most productive to make it.

WEIJUN ZHANG

PhD Candidate
MS: UC Davis, 2020
BS: Shaoxing University, 2015
