Dr. Sasitorn Srisawadi is currently a senior researcher at the National Metal and Materials Technology Center (MTEC, Thailand). In 2001, she graduated with a degree in Industrial Engineering at Chulalongkorn University. She started her career as an industrial engineer at Textile Prestige (Public) Co. Ltd., Thailand. In 2003, she received a scholarship from the Royal Thai Government to further her education in Industrial and Systems Engineering. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. from North Carolina State University, with her research work in additive manufacturing (rapid prototyping) and rapid tooling. In 2011, she took a research position in the Design and Engineering Research Unit at MTEC. Her research interests are in the fields of additive manufacturing, production process optimization, and composite materials fabrication. She has filed more than ten patent applications related to new process and automated system designs. In 2018, she won research funding from JWRI International Joint Research Collaborator, Osaka University, for her work on fabrication of metal matrix composite by selective laser melting technology. Currently, her research is mainly focused on additive manufacturing (3D printing), which extends to the development of novel 3D printing technology for natural latex and other composite materials. Having organized and given numerous talks, Dr. Srisawadi’s goal is to strengthen the capabilities of the Thai industry in adopting a disruptive technology, specifically, additive manufacturing. In addition, she believes that the rubber 3D printing technology will strengthen Thailand’s natural rubber value chains through a broad possibility of innovative rubber products.
