Areas of expertise
Filomeno Martina is a lecture in Additive Manufacture in the Welding Engineering and Laser Processing Centre, Cranfield University, where he's contributing to developing WAAM. 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 in Engineering and Management of Manufacturing Systems, and an MEng in Industrial and Management Engineering from Polytechnic of Bari (Italy).
