Dr Rebecca Boston is a Lloyd’s Register Foundation and Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
Martin Baumers is Assistant Professor of Additive Manufacturing Management at the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) in the Faculty of Engineering. In his research, Martin focuses on the economics and efficient operation of AM as well as the benefits that can be derived from adopting the technology. Starting with his doctoral research, Martin's work has concentrated on the development of novel approaches to production costing and build time estimation. Further areas of interest are process selection, computational build volume packing and scheduling approaches and shape complexity measurement techniques. Martin also investigates the environmental sustainability of additive processes, with an emphasis on energy consumption, to assess whether AM provides a pathway to more sustainable manufacturing and more benign products. Recently, Martin has started investigating management in digital manufacturing settings from the ecosystems and platform perspectives.

Overall, he worked for more than 10 years in both industrial and academic positions, including Intel Corporation, the National Centre for Sensor Research of Dublin City University in Ireland and the Microtechnology Institute of HES-SO Arc in Switzerland.
Dr Cinzia Giannetti received her Engineering Doctorate in Advanced Manufacturing from Swansea University in 2015. She currently holds a position as an Associate Professor in the Future Manufacturing Research Institute, College of Engineering, Swansea University. She is the holder of an EPSRC Innovation Fellowship in digital manufacturing (2018–2021) and co-investigator with the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in “Enhancing Human Interactions and Collaborations with Data and Intelligence-Driven Systems. Her expertise includes smart manufacturing and sensors technologies, with emphasis on knowledge and information management, data analytics, and machine learning techniques to support decision making through the use of sensors and large-scale databases.
Miao Guo is a Lecturer at Department of Engineering, King's College London. Miao's research experiences in Life Sciences and Chemical Engineering has enabled her to consolidate cross-disciplinary strengths at the interface of Engineering and Natural Sciences with a particular focus on biorenewables. Prior to moving to King's College London in 2019, Miao Guo was an EPSRC Research Fellow hosted at Imperial College London. In collaboration with international academics and industrial pioneers, Miao has been leading the frontier research to couple new modelling approaches with lab experiments to optimise resource-circular bio-renewable manufacturing.
Dr Jun Jiang is a Lecturer in Mech. Eng. Dept. at Imperial College London, researching and developing future intelligent metal manufacturing techniques. In the past 5 years, Jun published ~50 top journal papers with >1000 citations (h-index 22). Jun obtained his DPhil from the Materials Dept. at Oxford University in 2013, developing micromechanical characterization technique for studying the plasticity in metals. He then moved to Imperial, Materials Dept. as a post-doc to study the fatigue problem in the aero engine components. In 2016, he started a new journey in the Mech. Eng. Dept. as a Research Fellow to research metal manufacturing process. In 2017, he was appointed as a Lecturer and established his Intelligent metal forming group.
