Prof. Bruno Azeredo – Principal Investigator
Dr. Bruno Azeredo is the Fulton Development Assistant Professor of Manufacturing Engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. He holds an appointment in the School for Manufacturing Systems and Networks and is a member of the graduate faculty in Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Materials Science. Prior to joining ASU, Dr. Azeredo earned his B.S. in engineering mechanics in 2010, M.S. in theoretical and applied mechanics in 2013, and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering in 2016, all from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research focuses on scalable nanomaterial synthesis and its size-dependent properties with an eye at exploiting them in additive- and nano-manufacturing platforms and enable the production of multi-scale and multi-material structures. For his contributions to scalable nanomanufacturing, he is recipient of awards such as the 2018 Bisgrove Scholars Award from the Science Foundation Arizona, the 2020 National Science Foundation CAREER award, and the 2022 SME Sandra L. Bouckley Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award. His publication record can be found here: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=fajxvaYAAAAJ&hl=en

Stanislau Niauzorau – PhD Student
I am a Graduate Research Associate in Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory (supervised by Dr. Bruno Azeredo) at the Polytechnic school, Arizona State University. I received my B.S. in Electronics Engineering (BSUIR), M.S. in Nanomaterials and Nanotechnologies in Electronics both from the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR). I joined the PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at Arizona State University in August 2017. I did my bachelor thesis on Fabrication of Silicon Nanowires by Metal-Assisted Chemical Etching (supervised by Dr. Vitaly Bondarenko) and my master thesis on Lithium-Ion Batteries Based on Silicon Nanowires (supervised by Dr. Hanna Bandarenka). I am staying extremely excited and motivated about my current research on Nanostructured Metals with intent to exploit its fundamental nanoscale properties into Additive Manufacturing. Besides, the area of my interests expands towards photonics, plasmonics, bio- and chemical catalysis, sustainable research for water treatment and, ultimately, I am looking towards biomedical research topics with microporous materials.
