Dr Debajyoti Bhaduri is a Lecturer in High-Value Manufacturing within the Cardiff School of Engineering. His research interest broadly centres on the advanced machining / grinding, laser based micro-manufacturing and metal additive manufacturing (AM), hybrid manufacturing technologies, e.g. ultrasonic assisted machining / grinding, surface engineering via PVD coating, laser texturing, polishing etc.

Dr Bhaduri has been involved in several European projects over the past five years that focussed on development and implementation of hybrid manufacturing process chains incorporating various pre- and post-processing steps of metallic AM parts. During his PhD, he developed a novel hybrid ultrasonic assisted creep feed grinding process for machining of advanced aerospace alloys such as Inconel 718, CMSX-4 and gamma titanium aluminide. His research expertise also encompasses evaluation of surface integrity of machined parts via roughness, microhardness, microstructure and different microscopic and spectroscopic (EDS, WDS, EMPA, SIMS, XPS, OES and XRD) analysis.
