    Talk Title: Manufacturing -“ An Integration Platform

    Abstract: Manufacturing translates ideas, innovation and raw materials into products used by societies as a driving force for raising their living standards. To enhance the versatility of manufacturing processes and to fully integrate design and manufacturing for system optimization, research efforts at NIMSI are rooted in
    discovering new processes for flexible, personalized and secure manufacturing, and in enhancing system optimization by using the combination of the ICME (integrated computational materials engineering) and datadriven approaches. This talk will provide an overview of these activities and then focus on selected processes
    and their fundamentals, and techniques including machine learning to achieve better process outcomes and faster predictions compared to conventional methods. The processes to be highlighted include rapid dieless sheet forming for producing three-dimensional sheet parts without geometry-specific tooling, and metal-based powder-blown additive manufacturing.

    Biography: Dr. Cao (MIT 95, MIT 92, SJTU 89) is the Cardiss Collins Professor, Director of Northwestern Initiative for Manufacturing Science and Innovation, and an Associate Vice President for Research (AVPR) at Northwestern University. She served
    at the National Science Foundation as a program director for two years. Professor Cao is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), ASME, SME, and of the International Academy for Production Engineering
    (CIRP). Her major awards include the ASME Milton C. Shaw Manufacturing Research Medal (2020), SME Gold Medal (2020), Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship from DoD (2019), Charles Russ Richards Memorial Award (2017) from ASME and Pi Tau
    Sigma, SME Frederick W. Taylor Research Medal (2016), ASME Blackall Machine Tool and Gage Award (2012, 2018), ASME Young Investigator Award (2006) from Applied Mechanics Division, and the NSF CAREER Award. Prof. Cao is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Materials Processing Technology. She
    served as President of the SME North America Manufacturing Research Institute, and Chair of ASME Manufacturing Engineering Division. She is a recipient of the ASME Dedicated Service Award (2011). As an AVPR, Prof. Cao fosters the collaboration between disciplines across and beyond Northwestern. She is a Board
    member of mHUB, Chicago\'s first innovation center focused on physical product development and manufacturing.
