Dr Filomeno Martina is Senior Lecturer in Additive Manufacturing at the Welding Engineering and Laser Processing Centre, Cranfield University, where he also researches on in-process cold-work, Wire+Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) of titanium, WAAM hardware and cost modelling of the WAAM process. He also manages the WAAMMat research programme, which is currently worth £9M. He was the lead researcher for the AMAZE and HiDepAM projects. He currently holds an Erasmus+ grant to develop a new MSc course on metal AM (ADMIRE). He received his PhD in Additive Manufacturing from Cranfield University in 2014; the main focus of his doctoral research was the manipulation of geometry, microstructure and mechanical properties of large WAAM titanium deposits. Previously he earned an MSc also from Cranfield and an MEng in Industrial and Management Engineering from Polytechnic of Bari (Italy). He has received awards from BAE Systems (2010, 2018), Royal Aeronautical Society (2013), European Space Agency (2015), and The Welding Institute (2018).
