1st Technologies Webinar

Latest Innovations in Materials, Processing and Sustainable/Green Technologies

On behalf of the editorial office of Technologies, I warmly welcome you to attend the webinar on the Latest Innovations in Materials, Processing and Sustainable/Green Technologies.

With the climate changes and increasing pollution levels that are worrying the people across the globe, it has become almost necessary to use non-toxic materials including the one that can assist in reducing the fossil fuel consumption, innovating processing techniques that can improve the final outcomes with minimum carbon and toxicity signature to keep this planet a sustainable and healthy living place for the diverse spectrum of living organisms.

I introduce myself as Manoj Gupta, the Editor in Chief of Technologies journal. It is a great honor for me to chair this webinar on the Latest Innovations in Materials, Processing and Sustainable/Green Technologies. Four world-leading scientists including Dr. Hajo Dieringa of MagIC - Magnesium Innovation Center, Germany; Dr. Jutima Simsiriwong of University of North Florida, USA; Prof Anders E. W. Jarfors of Jönköping University, Sweden and Dr Hamidreza Ezatpour of Hakim Sabzevari University, Iran have been invited to talk on their research in this webinar.

I would like to thank all speakers for sharing their innovative research which I believe will significantly benefit the field of Materials.

I am looking forward to e-meet great scientists from different countries around the world during this webinar.

Date: 1 September 2022

Time: 4:00 pm CEST |10:00 am EDT | 10:00 pm CST Asia

Materials Group, Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore, Singapore

Prof. Dr. Manoj Gupta received his Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Irvine, USA, in 1992, and is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the National University of Singapore. In August 2017, he was highlighted among the Top 1% Scientist of the World Position by The Universal Scientific Education and Research Network, as well as among the top 2.5% by ResearchGate and the top 1% in Stanford’s list of researchers. To his credit are (i) the disintegrated melt deposition technique and (ii) hybrid microwave sintering technique, an energy efficient solid-state processing method used to synthesize alloys/microcomposites/nanocomposites. He has published over 600 peer-reviewed journal papers, co-authored 8 books, and owns 2 US patents.

Invited Speakers

Department "Hybrid Materials and Processes", Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon, Institute of Material and Process Design, Geesthacht, Germany

Dr. Hajo Dieringa graduated in Physics at Carl von Ossietzky University in Oldenburg in 1999 and received his PhD from the Technical University Hamburg-Harburg in 2006. Since 2000 he has been working at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon, formerly known as HZG. In addition to teaching assignments for materials science at the University of Applied Sciences (HAW) in Hamburg, he gave lectures at the FH Lübeck and the TU Hamburg-Harburg. Dr. Dieringa developed creep-resistant magnesium alloys, which do not require rare earths but still exhibit excellent mechanical properties even at elevated temperatures. In addition, he heads a Department "Hybrid Materials and Processes" in the Institute of Material and Process Design. He develops nanocomposites that show extraordinary mechanical or physical properties and functionalization. Dr. Dieringa has published over 125 peer reviewed papers and has an h-index of 22 (Scopus) with over 1250 citations. He holds seven patents, has written three books and seven book chapters, is the author of over 30 invited talks and organized the Light Metals Technology Conference in Lüneburg (LMT2011) in 2011. He is guest editor of the special issue of "Metals" titled "Production and Properties of Light Metal Matrix Nanocomposites" and a research topic of "Frontiers in Materials" titled "Latest Developments in the Field of Magnesium Alloys and their Applications".

School of Engineering, University of North Florida, Jacksonville, USA,
National Center for Additive Manufacturing Excellence (NCAME), Auburn University, USA

Dr. Jutima Simsiriwong is an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of North Florida. She earned her Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from Mississippi State University. Jutima has research interests in fatigue and fracture of metallic and polymer-based materials fabricated using conventional and additive manufacturing processes for applications in biomedical and aerospace structures. Jutima is an active member of American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), and has recently received the ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Young Professional Award.

Department of Materials and Manufacturing, School of Engineering, Jönköping University, Sweden

Professor Anders Jarfors, Professor in Materials and Manufacturing – Casting at JTH at Jönköping University Anders Jarfors has a MSc (1987), and PhD (1992) from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) Stockholm, Sweden. In 2000 he was given the title Docent/Reader/Associate Professor. In 2000 he left KTH for Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology, (SIMTech) supporting the contract manufacturing industry in Singapore and Malaysia making mainly, telecom and automotive components. In 2003 he was seconded to MMI Holdings as acting Head of Engineering responsible for casting, brazing, plating and production development. In 2004 He left SIMTech for SwereaKIMAB (RI.SE nowadays) as Business Area Director for Alloy development and process development with responsibility for Casting, Powder Metallurgy, Thermodynamics, Thermo-Mechanical Processing, Metallography and Analytical Chemistry. In 2007 Anders Jarfors returned to SIMTech. The main research work was related to casting with work focusing on casting the un-castable, for electronics cooling and domestic appliances, as well as for automotive components. In 2009 he returned to academia as Adjunct Associate Professor with School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University. Here the research focused on superplastic forming, micro-stamping and cast ultra-high strength biocompatible Mg based metallic glasses. Since August 2011 Anders Jarfors is Professor in Materials and Manufacturing–Casting. The research includes all kinds of casting but has lately been more focusted towards aluminium and in particular the development of rheocasting and a more sustainable material use and management in the casting process. He is also currently a Guest professor at the State Key Laboratory for Advanced Forming Technology and Equipment of P.R. China. He is furthermore a Guest Professor at Cranfield University, UK working within the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Materials & Manufacturing.

Department of Engineering Sciences, Hakim Sabzevari University, Sabzevar, Iran

Dr Hamidreza Ezatpour is Head of Engineering Sciences Division of the Department of New Technologies at Hakim Sabzevari University, Iran. He did MEng in 2009 and Ph.D. (2014) from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. He worked at Nanyang Technology University of Singapore (NTU) in position of research assistant (NTU: 2014). He was highlighted among Top researchers in University from 2017-2021. To his credit are: (i) Light Alloys, (ii) High Entropy Alloys, (iii) Metal Matrix Composites and (iv) Hot Deformation.
