Dr. Eduardo Barocio is the Director of the Composites Additive Manufacturing and Simulation Consortium at the Purdue Composites Manufacturing and Simulation Center. He holds a Ph.D. from Purdue University and a BSc in Mechatronics Engineering from Tecnologico de Monterrey. Dr. Barocio research interest is on modeling and simulation of composites manufacturing processes as well as on developing new manufacturing processes for composites. His work is primarily in the field of extrusion deposition additive manufacturing with fiber-reinforced polymers. During his Ph.D., Dr. Barocio led the development of the composites additive manufacturing research instrument (CAMRI) and co-developed a comprehensive physics-based process simulation workflow for additive manufacturing called Additive3D.
