Welcome to Advanced Manufacturing and Design (AMD) Laboratory led by Professor Qi (Kevin) Ge at Singapore University of Technology and Design. Our research aims at developing new multifunctional advanced manufacturing approaches to design and manufacture active composites, structures, devices that are made of functional materials, designed by the computational tools based on the fundamental understanding of multiphysics and nonlinear mechanics behaviors, and manufactured by advanced manufacturing technologies such as multimaterial 3D printing, micro/nanoscale 3D printing, 4D printing etc. Our research mainly consists of three tightly connected interdisciplinary directions:

Modeling: Constitutive modeling, Multiphysics coupling, Material property characterization

Materials: Polymer synthesis, Material property characterization, Microstructure design

Manufacturing: 3D/4D printing, Machine design, Control system development
