Brief Bio:
Dr. Tushar M. Borkar, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, joined CSU this Fall. Dr. Borkar's primary research focus is on advanced metallic and functionally graded composite (or hybrid) materials for aerospace, energy, and biomedical applications. The development of new class of materials (metal alloys and metal matrix composites) via novel advanced processing tools including additive manufacturing processes along with the use of advanced characterization techniques constitute a common thread tying his multiple research activities. These techniques are used to identify the underlying mechanisms and phase transformations governing microstructural evolution and microstructure-property relationships in the complex multi-phase, multi-component materials systems.

Dr. Borkar's current work is focusing on the development of next generation biomaterials and structural materials via additive manufacturing techniques as well as developing new methodologies to improve the versatility of additive manufacturing techniques. Unlike conventional materials removal methods, additive manufacturing (AM) is based on a novel materials incremental manufacturing philosophy. Additive manufacturing implies layer-by-layer shaping and consolidation of powder feedstock to arbitrary configurations, normally using a computer-controlled laser. The current development focus of AM is to produce complex shaped functional metallic components, including metals, alloys and metal matrix composites (MMCs), to meet demanding requirements from aerospace, defense, automotive and biomedical industries. Additive manufacturing technology, which involves a comprehensive integration of materials science, mechanical engineering, and laser technology, is regarded as an important revolution in manufacturing industry.
