Dr. Ronan Daly
Dr. Ronan Daly (RD) is a University Senior Lecturer in the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge. He is a Course Director for the Manufacturing Engineering course, where students learn about manufacturing technologies and manufacturing management. He previously worked in Unilever R&D before completing a PhD in Chemistry from School of Chemistry and Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices, Trinity College Dublin. He leads the Fluids in Advanced Manufacturing research group, which tackles the fluid flow and functional material challenges to enable scale-up of advanced technologies to manufacturing. There are three research themes:
A – Multidisciplinary process science. The group brings together fundamental laboratory research in a range of disciplines – chemistry, nanoscience, fluid mechanics and interfacial science to focus on manufacturing techniques and processes.
B – The Inkjet Research Centre. The group studies scientific phenomena that constrain current inkjet applications
C – Science of scale-up. Understanding the interdependencies between the advanced functionality of emerging materials/devices and their associated manufacturing technologies.
