Yoanna studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Liverpool and graduated with an MEng in July 2013. Her interest in additive manufacturing and laser technologies developed during her individual project, advanced research project and internship while working on automating alloy encapsulation methods for the Accelerated Metallurgy Project with Renishaw Plc.
Yoanna joined the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision at Cambridge in October 2013 as an MRes Student under the supervision of Prof. Bill O’Neill. She is currently doing her PhD at the IFM under the supervision of Dr. Ronan Daly in the Fluids in Advanced Manufacturing Group. Yoanna is researching the digital fabrication of biomedical sensors by combining inkjet printing and ultrafast laser processing. Her project is sponsored by M-SOLV and the Centre for Science Innovation Technology Policy.
