Aleksandr Zinoviev

Senior Research Associate

I am a researcher with a cross-disciplinary and innovation-oriented background incorporating metal additive manufacturing, thermodynamics of materials, computational materials science, solid mechanics, software engineering, and machine learning, with a sound applied focus of my research. I particularly enjoy developing and applying novel knowledge-based approaches to address engineering challenges. My research aims to improve materials and parts produced by advanced manufacturing, optimise the production process, and enhance data processing.

Since 2022 I am a Senior Research Associate at the School of Engineering and Information Technology (SEIT), UNSW Canberra. Prior to this, I was working at Siemens Digital Industries Software (Belgium), University of Bremen and AMSIS GmbH (Germany), Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Tomsk Polytechnic University (Russia). I also had several research stays at the University of Bremen (Germany) and São Paulo State University (Brazil).

Scholarships of up to $35,000 (AUD) are available for prospective PhD and Research Master's candidates who achieved High Distinction (H1 or equivalent) in their undergraduate program and/or have completed a Masters by Research.
