MMAE Seminar by Dr. Jonghyun Park – Multiscale Structural Control via Additive Manufacturing Process

Armour College of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical, Materials, and Aerospace Engineering will welcome Dr. Jonghyun Park, associate professor in the Department Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, to present a lecture, “Multiscale Structural Control via Additive Manufacturing Process.”

The virtual seminar will take place on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, from 3:30–4:30 p.m.

Contact Elena Magnus at for the seminar details and a link to join.

This talk will highlight several novel additive manufacturing (AM) processes and their modeling-based analysis, and how we utilize different manufacturing methods to control the macro-/micro-structures of target systems for various applications, including metallic structures, energy devices, and bioengineering. Despite its significant advantages, AM has several challenges including slow process, lack of quality, and limitations in materials and applications. This talk will specifically focus on how those challenges can be addressed. This includes (1) multiscale modeling approach for laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process to understand its fundamental physics and process-property relationship, (2) novel AM processes for energy and bio applications via various AM techniques, and (3) other relevant research activities through modeling, material process, and manufacturing.


Dr. Jonghyun Park is an associate professor in the Department Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology. Before joining to Missouri S&T, he was an Assistant Research Scientist in the department of mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Prior to this, he spent two years as a post-doctoral research fellow after finishing his PhD in the same department at Michigan in 2009. He spent five years with Hyundai Heavy Industry after finishing his bachelor’s and master’s in science from Seoul National University in South Korea. His expertise includes advanced manufacturing for energy systems, energy materials, and multiscale/multiphysics modeling for energy and manufacturing. He is actively involved in multiple projects from diverse federal agencies and industry. He is a recipient for several awards, including dean’s scholar, faculty research award, research acceleration award. Currently, he is an Associate Editor in Frontiers in Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage, and an Academic Editor in PLOS ONE.
