Current Work

Since the introduction of large-scale additive manufacturing with concrete based materials, there has been a need to develop robust control systems that manage the modern manufacturing method. Due to remote locations and inconsistent printing conditions, manual intervention is often required during the printing process.

My research will be focusing on improving accuracy, defect mitigation, and increasing the automation capabilities of large-scale concrete additive manufacturing.
