Ilaria Cristofolini

Technical Programme Committee Co-Chair
Prof. Dr.Ilaria Cristofolini

University of Trento, Italy

Ilaria Cristofolini is associate professor in the field of Design methods for industrial engineering at the University of Trento – I, Industrial Engineering Department. She earned her PhD in Metallurgical engineering in 1995 at the University of Padua, based on her research on chemical-physical mechanisms occurring on sintering PM stainless steel. After her PhD, she focused her attention on design methods, mainly dealing with characterization and control of the geometry of products, as a crucial aspect in determining the functionality. She investigated in depth the influence of process variables and related mechanisms on the geometry of PM parts produced by press and sinter, both considering powder behaviour during uniaxial compaction, and anisotropic dimensional change on sintering. In this field, she coordinates several international projects with industrial partners, among them EPMA Club projects. Recently, her research interests also comprehend design methods for Additive Manufacturing, mainly dealing with metals Binder Jetting. Co-author of more than 150 publications, she is member of Editorial board of Powder Metallurgy – Taylor and Francis journal, and of Section Editorial board “Powder Metallurgy” of Metals – MDPI journal. She participates in the PM community as TPC member of EuroPM, WorldPM and PowderMet international conferences.

The EPMA would like to express its sincere thanks to the members of the Technical Programme Committee for their support and hard work in structuring the Euro PM2019 programme and for reviewing the submitted papers.
