in laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process and metallurgy.
Leonidas holds a Master Degree in Production and Management Engineering and a Master of Science in Space Studies. He acquired his PhD in 2021 from the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) at the University of Nottingham, UK. Leonidas specialises in material science of functional magnetic materials and highly conductive metals such as copper, processed via LPBF.
He has more than 5 years of experience in AM with various metals and alloys and his understanding of powder metallurgy as well as material vs laser interaction brings a new perspective in metals process development and optimisation. His versatile background enables him to deliver complex innovative projects with his extensive knowledge of novel materials and technologies. Leonidas enjoys being able to provide state of the art, high quality metal products for a variety of industries while being involved in the product lifecycle from concept ideas to end applications. His research work has been published in several journals and conferences.
