Biofabrication, Tissue Engineering, Additive Manufacturing
He has worked on additive manufacturing for over 15 years and recently he and his group has developed a novel biofabrication system using the E-jetting technique to generate and orientate micrometer-size fibers, and build engineered meniscal scaffolds with tailored internal 3D microstructure via layer-by-layer fabrication technique, replicating the internal microstructure resembling that of the native meniscus. Due to his work on additive manufacturing and its applications to biomedical engineering, he and his team has won the prestigious engineering achievement award from the Institute of Engineers Singapore in 2007.
