Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Rebecca Murray is currently working as the director of the Advanced Manufacturing Alliance at CDU to drive industry engagement, VET partnerships, and research on a world-first 3D metal printing technology from SPEE3D. Her background is in both Biomedical Engineering (Dr. Ing, MSc.) and Materials Engineering (BSc) with substantial experience in international collaborations between industry and academia.

Prospective HDR Students

Looking for high-quality research students to progress knowledge of the potentially transformative 3D metal printing technology from SPEE3D. The world's first LightSPEE3D machine was installed on the Darwin Casurina campus and we are looking for students to join the Advanced Manufacturing Alliance to test this new technology's capabilities and performance and to uncover new possibilities.

General research topics include-

 - Heat Treatment Effects on Bulk Cold Sprayed Components
 - Application Testing and Formal Compliance Pathways for 3D Printed Components
 - Residual Stress and Defect Distribution in Bulk Cold Sprayed Components
 - Material Combinations, Gradients and Interfaces for Components made from Supersonic 3D Deposition
 - Shape Conformation and Optimization for Items Produced Using Supersonic 3D Deposition
 - Comparative Environmental, Economic and Manufacturing Footprint of Manufacturing Techniques (e.g. embedded energy)
