Luke Parry is an Assistant Professor of Functional Materials in Additive Manufacturing within the Centre for Additive Manufacturing, University of Nottingham, UK

My personal website will share some concepts, thoughts and guidance related to Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing along with some personal interests, including programming, numerical approaches to simulation, and design techniques for Additive Manufacturing. I will share insight into research under my guidance and those within our research group.

My general interest in 3D Printing specifically focus on the development of computational design tools including the use of lattice structures, topology optimisation and the development of efficient computational approaches for the generation of structures. I contribute to the PySLM project – aiming to deliver a tool and framework for research into designing scan strategies used for fabrication in Powder Bed Fusion technology processes.

Over time, I plan to gradually share concept and ideas related to some personal projects and research I am doing independently via articles on my blog that are of interest to the community. My hope this will evolve with time, inspire new ideas, prompt discussion and be useful to people interested in this area. Please also see some of my projects available on github.

Academic and Industrial Collaborations

I am open to any collaborations in relation to work that across both Industry and Academia. Please free to get in touch.

PhD Opportunities

Funded PhD Studentship opportunities are available for high-calibre students that are interesting pursuing research topics related specifically to Multi-Metal AM, Simulation and Design for AM including the integration of AM. Please get in touch to discuss further proposed topics.
