M.S. - 2009, University of Nebraska Lincoln
B.S. - 2004, Harbin Institute of Technology
Dr. Dong Lin joined the department of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering at K-State as an assistant professor in 2015. He holds a doctorate in industrial engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette. He worked as research associate in industrial engineering and materials engineering from 2013 to 2015.
Lin’s most recent research interests focus on 3D printing of multifunctional aerogels for various application, and 3D printing of carbon fiber composites. He is also interested in additive manufacturing light weight and super strong metal composites. During his doctorate study, he investigated mechanical behavior of nanoparticle, carbon nanotube and graphene oxide reinforced iron nanocomposites under high strain rate deformation.
Lin was awarded the Big 12 Faculty Fellowship in 2016. While at Purdue University, Lin was awarded the Ross Fellowship, a four-year package to recruit outstanding Ph.D. track students, from 2009 to 2013. He was a member of Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society at the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 2008. He received the Siemens Scholarship from the Siemens Foundation in 2007.
