Abdullah Al Amin is an Assistant Professor in the department of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the University of Dayton. He leads the ‘Smart Manufacturing Advancement and Logistics Technology (SMALT) laboratory. His research aims to advance the technologies involving smart manufacturing by focusing on i. Hybrid Twin (Real-time computational control) for the manufacturing process, ii. Reduced order and data-driven approach for accelerated computation utilizing high-performance-computation (HPC) environment, iii. Computational Mechanics for process-structure-property predictions.
Before joining the University of Dayton, Dr. Amin was a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University (2021-2023) and a Senior Research Engineer for Bridgestone America Technical Center (2018-2021). He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University after receiving his MS and BS from the University of Akron and Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).
