Richard has a PhD in additive manufacturing from Imperial College London (UK), followed by 2 years of postdoc also at Imperial College London. Following that Richard is currently at the National University of Singapore (NUS) as a research fellow continuing his work in additive manufacturing on various high-profile projects.
He has in-depth experience with Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF), specialising in part quality and process monitoring. During his research career, he has developed Finite Element (FE) simulations of the Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) process and assessed the mechanical performance and microstructure of parts. Recently he also focussed on developing an in-situ process monitoring system. Richard’s experience in this field includes 316L stainless steel as well as titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) and some knowledge about other alloys.
Richard is looking to work with customers seeking support on technical aspects of metal Additive Manufacturing, including process setup and development, part quality validation, part performance/properties and machine issues.
In a call session, he will provide troubleshooting for process-related issues and act as a sounding board for part design, material and process selection as well as quality assessment.
Richard’s core areas of expertise include:
Design & Simulation
Process & Materials
