Laser processing
Work position: Senior lecturer in Laser Processing and Additive Manufacture
Category: Academic input
I am a researcher scientist working on various projects in Laser Processing, Arc welding and Additive Manufacture. My area of expertise is in Laser Processing, Arc Welding and Hybrid Laser Welding for various applications from micro-joining to thick section welding.
I hold a PhD in Laser Welding from Cranfield University and MSc in Materials Science from Gdansk University of Technology. Over a couple of years, I have been actively involved in research on fundamentals of Laser-Material interactions and development of Laser Welding for various applications. One of the outcomes of the work was the development of simple algorithms for improvement of transferability of laser processes between different lasers. I work actively towards promoting more robust “black art” free laser welding, by encouraging better understanding of laser welding amongst the laser users. The work, therefore, has been strongly applied and closely collaborative with various industries. I am a hands-on man with good knowledge and interest in fundamental aspects of Welding Technology and Engineering.
