Additive Manufacturing

Thank you to all participants who joined us at Filitalia’s Science Symposium, the final in a series of three seminars. Watch the recap of the Symposium below to learn more about the world of additive manufacturing!

Introduction to Additive Manufacturing

Antonio Paesano, Ph.D.
Symposium Scientific Chair

Introduction to Additive Manufacturing

Antonio Paesano is currently Additive Manufacturing Lead at the Philadelphia site of The Boeing Company. He received a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. in Materials Engineering from the University of Naples Federico II (Italy), and M.S. in Polymer Science from the University of Ferrara (Italy).

His experience encompasses additive manufacturing, engineering materials, design, advanced manufacturing, testing and analysis, correlation material properties-process parameters-component performance, product development, metrology, applied statistics, and quality improvement. He holds six patents, authored and co-authored more than 50 technical papers and two book chapters in his areas of expertise. He has been the scientific chair and invited speakers at international conferences in advanced materials and manufacturing. He authored a handbook on additive manufacturing that will be published in 2021.

A virtual tour and technology demonstration.

Martina Rama is a medical student at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University. Originally from Brescia, Italy, she graduated in 2019 with a B.S. in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology from the University of California Los Angeles. She has a background in basic science research, and spent a year studying cancer therapeutics at the Helen Diller Cancer Center at the University of California San Francisco. Her passion for research and medical advancement, together with her personal interest in 3D printing drew her to join the research team at the Health Design Lab at TJUH in the fall 2020. As someone interested in finding creative solutions that can drive change in the healthcare setting, Martina is interested in exploring how 3D printing can be used to improve clinical outcomes and enhance the patient experience. In the future, she hopes to pursue a surgical subspecialty and continue her work at the intersection of research and design.
