Computer Aided Manufacturing

The Computer-Aided Manufacturing Group uses materials chemistry, additive manufacturing, and machine learning to realise entirely new devices and materials whose structure and composition is optimised from the nano- to the macro-scale to improve interaction with the human body and enhance lives.

Research areas:
