Profile

Dr Chinnapat Panwisawas obtained his PhD in Metallurgy and Materials from University of Birmingham UK (2009 - 2013) and his BSc (First Class Honours) in Physics (Honours Programme) from Department of Physics Chulalongkorn University Thailand (2004 - 2008). After the conferment of his PhD Dr Panwisawas has joined University of Birmingham from June 2013 to May 2018 as Research Fellow. In June 2018 he has awarded EPSRC UKRI Innovation Fellowship and became Senior Fellow at Department of Materials University of Oxford. Dr Panwisawas joins University of Leicester as NISCO Associate Professor in Digital Manufacturing at NISCO UK Research Centre School of Engineering on January 2020.

Research

Dr Chinnapat Panwisawas' research has been concentrated over the last 13 years on advanced process science and engineering of investment casting laser fusion welding and powder-bed fusion additive manufacturing particularly for establishing a multi-scale multi-physics approach to understand the process-structure-property-performance relationship of advanced metallic materials for aerospace energy and biomedical applications.
