Advanced Manufacturing Precinct (AMP) tour

Dr. Joe Elambasseril is a Research Fellow in Additive Laser Manufacture.

Joe has 10 years of teaching and research experience in the areas of Computer-Integrated-Manufacturing, Fracture Mechanics and Finite Element Methods. During his PhD, he developed a novel technique to characterise and evaluate the interfacial fracture toughness of coatings.

Dr. Elambasseril is working on the DMTC funded project on additive laser manufacture of small scale JSF type components involving Lockheed Martin, DSTO and University of Wollongong, led by Professor Milan Brandt. Dr Elambasseril was a Senior Lecturer in SJCET, Palai, India from 2002 to 2006, a Research Assistant and sessional lecturer at Monash University from 2007 to 2010 and his last position was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Monash University.
