Kazi Moshiur Rahman

Ph.D. Student, Mechanical Engineering

Kazi received his BS in Mechanical Engineering from Islamic University of Technology, Bangladesh in 2012 and MS in Mechanical Engineering from South Dakota State University (SDSU), USA in 2016. At SDSU he got his experience of additive manufacturing through several different research projects. He worked on characterization of additively manufactured Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) thermoplastic through Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) system. He also studied additive manufacturing of hierarchical cellular honeycomb structures and their characterization.

Kazi joined DREAMS Lab in May 2017 to pursue his Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech under supervision of Dr. Chris Williams. He is working on an NSF funded collaborative project to investigate various aspects of metal casting of cellular structures using additively manufactured sand molds through binder jetting process. Additional research interests include design for additive manufacturing, materials for additive manufacturing, finite element analysis etc.
