Brian Howell

Dynamic Optimization for Direct-Ink-Write Printing

After receiving his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Brigham Young University, Brian worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a research engineer developing radiative-curing materials for advanced manufacturing techniques. As a PhD student in the Mechanical Engineering department, Brian on works multi-physics simulation of the deposition of particle-filled non-Newtonian fluids, feedback control, and process & materials optimization. In his spare time, Brian is an avid endurance athlete.
