Candice Majewski is a lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. She has a first degree in Mechanical Engineering from Loughborough University, and an MSc in Rapid Product Development from De Monfort University. Following completion of her MSc, Candice moved back to Loughborough University to undertake her PhD.
Candice's research is in the area of additive manufacturing, with a specialism in polymer-based processes.
Areas of Research
Candice has been involved in additive manufacturing since 2000, initially working with metal-based sintering processes. Since then she has moved towards polymer-based processes, again mainly focused around sintering technologies.
She has also managed several consultancy and contract research projects, using the knowledge gained from previous research projects to help steer the selection and development of new materials for the Laser Sintering process.
Her work has been recognised globally, most notably with the award of the 2011 International Outstanding Young Research in Freeform and Additive Manufacturing Award, and the Rapid Prototyping Journal's Outstanding Paper Award 2010.
