Explore 3D printing materials science with Dr. Rigoberto Advincula

At Malvern Panalytical, we are honored to welcome Professor Rigoberto Advincula as guest presenter of our webinar on additive manufacturing – more commonly known as 3D printing. This technique, a breakthrough technology in rapid prototyping and processes, continues to gain ground in industrial manufacturing. In the webinar, we will provide an overview of additive manufacturing, delve deeper into specific polymeric applications, and touch on how the field overlaps with the use of gel permeation chromatography for polymer characterization. 

Speaker: Dr. Rigoberto “Gobet” Advincula is a professor in the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve University as well as Governor's Chair at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee. His career spans basic-to-applied research in characterizing and developing new materials for a range of areas including sensors, electro-optics, biotechnology, biomedicine, energy production, and advanced manufacturing. His current research focuses on: 

  • Synthesis of new functional nanomaterials capable of ordering at surfaces and interfaces
  • Application of surface-sensitive spectroscopic, microscopic, optical, and electrochemical analytical techniques to understand ordering and phenomena
  • Electro-optical devices and sensor applications of ultrathin films and particles
  • Biotechnology and biomedical applications
  • Additives and nanomaterials for oil & gas energy production
  • Additive manufacturing and 3D printing
