[Apr 2024] Our students at LAMM had the opportunity to participate at the Expanding your Horizons (EYH) conference hosted at Cornell. The EYH conference is a 1 day immersive experience for 7-8th grade school girls across upstate NY with interests in exploring Math and Science related fields. Hosted by graduate students at Cornell, our PhD students (Mahya Azizi, Ashlee Gaboureel and Adrita Dass) shared with students the kind of work we do in Additive manufacturing and the impact it can have in our society. 

We are excited to be part of this program and serving as role models for girls looking to pursue careers in STEM fields.  


[Dec 2023] Our lab has been awarded supplementary funding under the DOD “Defense University Research Instrumentation Program” to support the acquisition of a L-PBF system. 

This is a great addition to the suite of AM technologies at Cornell.
