MATERIALS-RELATED STRUCTURAL, THERMAL, ELECTRONIC AND MANUFACTURING RESEARCH
Presenter D.D.L. Chung, PhD
Professor, Composite Materials Research Laboratory
University at Buffalo, The State University of New York
Professor Chung will share the journey, breakthroughs, challenges and passion associated with her 45-year materials research that encompasses structural, thermal, electronic and manufacturing engineering. Her vast research includes the development of materials and processes for numerous applications, in addition to the discovery of materials behavior. She is the inventor of smart concrete, high-throughput large-format 3D metal printing, and 3D metal printing self-monitoring. In addition, she is an international leader in the fields of multifunctional structural materials, electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding materials, thermal interface materials (for microelectronic cooling), carbon materials (e.g., carbon fibers) and, most recently, electrically conductive dielectric materials. In this seminar, she will also share about the keys to scientific success.
