My calendar this semester
I obtained my BTech in Mechanical Engineering from IIT, Kanpur
in 1987, and my MS (1989) and PhD (1993) from the
School of IE, Purdue University , working with T.C. Chang.
I joined the Dept of IELM at
HKUST in October 1993. I am current a professor in the Dept of IELM. I have been the undergraduate
coordinator for IELM since 2013. I am also the Director of the Advanced Manufacturing Institute (AMI) in HKUST.
My research interests revolve around various aspects of
CAD/CAM, including machining of moulds and dies,
flexible tooling, rapid prototyping, and shape optimization for manufacturing.
Typically, these problems use tools like shape modeling, computational geometry, and optimization.
Selected Research Projects
Geometric algorithms for automated machining planning of complex pockets
Precision Manufacturing using mechanical datums
Real time control of multi-platform rapid prototyping systems
Shape modeling for footwear design
DFM in architecture
Prospective RA's, MPhil, PhD, PostDocs
I am looking to add RA's/Mphil or PhD student and a Post Doctoral fellow to my group. Resaerch topics will be related
to either human modeling, architectural geometry or Layered manufacturing. Prospective candidates should have suffcient interest and background in
computational and differential geometry, optimization, and CAD. It's also useful to be good at programming (C++).
Here is a list of my papers. Please email me for soft copies.
