Assoc. Prof Jie Zhou
Delft University of Technology, Netherlands

Jie Zhou is an associate professor with the Section of Biomaterials and Tissue Biomechanics, Department of Biomechanical Engineering, Delft University of Technology. He earned his PhD at the same university in 1991, based on his research on the extrusion of rapidly solidified aluminum alloy powders. After his PhD, he became a research associate and remained affiliated with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering to develop his expertise further in powder technology and forming technology. His research interests extended from aluminum alloys to magnesium alloys and metal matrix composites, while his core research activities on powder metallurgy remained largely unchanged. In recent years, his research interests have shifted from materials for engineering applications to those for biomedical applications and from formative manufacturing to additive manufacturing. Currently, his research is focused on biodegradable metals, alloys and composites in porous or consolidated form and on powder-bed-based and extrusion-based additive manufacturing processes. He has (co-)authored over 200 papers on processing of aluminum, magnesium and titanium alloys as well as metal-matrix composites. He is a recipient of numerous awards for his publications and for his contributions to scientific journals in the field of materials science and engineering.

Technical Programme Committee Co-Chair
Dr.-Ing. Anke Kaletsch

RWTH Aachen University, Institute for Materials Applications in Mechanical Engineering (IWM), Germany

Anke Kaletsch is head of the division powder technology at the Institute for Materials Applications in Mechanical Engineering (IWM) at RWTH Aachen University. In addition, she is the deputy head of the Institute of Applied Powder Metallurgy and Ceramics (IAPK), which is an associated Institute of RWTH Aachen University. Anke Kaletsch studied Mechanical Engineering in Aachen and received her doctoral degree from RWTH Aachen University in 2016. At IWM and IAPK she coordinates research activities and projects in the field of powder metallurgy and ceramics. The main research areas in her department are additive manufacturing (AM), hot isostatic pressing (HIP) and sinter simulation for different production processes like HIP, FAST/SPS or sintering of parts, produced by binder jetting. Her own scientific focus is the combination of additive manufacturing technologies with hot isostatic pressing. In this field, she is working on her habilitation treatise. The combination of AM and HIP enables on the one hand the improvement of fatigue performance for AM-materials, and opens on the other hand new opportunities for design-free HIP capsule production for net-shape components and functional composite-components.
