Based on popular demand, we are inviting industry and academic influencers to speak at our first “theme-based” webinar focusing on how artificial intelligence/machine learning is accelerating the 3D printing process and adoption.
Joint lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering Monash University
Dr. Yunlong Tang joined the Faculty of Engineering at Monash University in Feb 2020. Currently, he is a lecturer jointly appointed by the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. His major research interests are in the general field of design and manufacturing, including smart manufacturing, additive manufacturing, and its related design methods, sustainable design and manufacturing, AI-aided design, CAD/CAM, design and fabrication of lattice or cellular materials. Yunlong has over nine years of international R&D experience, participating in several national research and industrial projects from China, Canada, Europe, and Singapore. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from McGill University, Canada in 2017, M.Sc. degree from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China in 2013, B.Sc. degree from Harbin Institute of Technology in 2010. Before he coming to Monash, he did one and half year Post-Doc research at Singapore University of Technology and Design and was working on the next generation of CAD software for AM. He is a leading developer of an open-source lattice structure design and optimization software called INTRALATTICE PRO which has been downloaded more than ten thousand times by now.
