Sharon Nai is a Senior Principal Scientist and R&D Director at Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech). She obtained her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the National University of Singapore. Her research interests include the development of metallic powders (e.g. Al alloys, Ti alloys, Inconel alloy, steels, high entropy alloys, composites) for additive manufacturing and additive manufacturing process and system development to realise the end-to-end processing of complex geometrical multi-material parts with multi-functionalities. She has also published two books, two book chapters and over 130 journal papers.
