Roshan Sasi recently joined the mineAlloy team at IFM, Deakin University, as a PhD student. His project focuses on developing wear resistant composites with a High Entropy Alloy matrix through laser additive manufacturing. The project will also explore the possibility of using additive manufacturing to fabricate carbide-reinforced composites with a high work-hardening matrix, such as Hadfield steel.
Roshan obtained his Master’s degree in Manufacturing Engineering from the National Institute of Technology in Warangal, India. His Master’s project focused on laser surface texturing of cutting tools to improve their tribological performance. Before joining IFM, Roshan worked at Pfizer as Industrial Engineer for two years, and he lectured at the National Institute of Technology in Calicut, India, for one year.
