Dr. Dong Lin is an Associate Professor at Oregon State University. His research mainly focuses on bio-inspired printing of functional structures. Using the 3DFP technique, he has successfully printed the first truly 3D graphene aerogels and this research received Guinness World Record: World’s lightest material (0.5 mg/cm 3 ) via 3D printing. His research outputs have been highlighted by ~136,000 websites: including Science Daily, Materials Today, and MSN. He has published 78 peer-reviewed journal articles and many of them are in top journals, including Advanced Materials, Nature Communications, ACS Nano, Advanced Functional Materials, Nano Energy, Small, and Acta Materialia. He has received the NSF CAREER Award, Chao and Trigger Young Manufacturing Engineer Award from ASME, which recognizes a young manufacturing researcher under 40 with potential for significant fundamental contributions to the science and technology of manufacturing processes, and Outstanding Paper Award at the SME 49 th NAMRC. He was also selected to participate in 2021 NAE EU-U.S. Frontiers of Engineering symposium. He has received funding support from NSF, Army, NASA, USDA, and industry. He is also the associate editor of Journal of Manufacturing Processes.

Research Interests

Dr. Lin specializes in 3D printing of aerogels, metal additive manufacturing, 3D printing of carbon fiber composites, and metal matrix composites.
