Ali Khoshkhoo


Ali Khoshkhoo earned his PhD from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Auburn University. He received his MSc degree from University of Missouri-Columbia in Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering and BSc from University of Tehran (Iran) in Industrial and Systems Engineering. His ongoing research interests lie at the cross-section of 3D printing or additive manufacturing (AM) and surface metrology for a variety of applications such as biomedical, biological, and tribology. His laboratory will take cues from development to identify surface characteristics that affect physical surface properties for related applications. Also, his research interests include design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) guidelines for a variety of AM technologies.
