Guglielmo Vastola, PMP®, is a Senior Scientist and Project Manager at the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing in Singapore. His experience focuses on modeling and simulations of additive manufacturing, with particular emphasis on selective laser melting, electron beam melting, and selective laser sintering processes for both metallic and plastic industrial components. He graduated in Physics in 2005 at the University of Pavia, Italy, and then obtained his PhD in Materials Science at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy in 2008 with a thesis on modeling and simulation of self-assembled nanostructures.
He joined the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing in 2009 and was visiting research scholar at the Department of Engineering at Brown University, Providence, RI under the supervision of prof. Vivek Shenoy to work on the assembly of heterogenous materials structures at the nanoscale.
He went to the private sector in 2012 by joining Enermill Renewable Energies, Italy, to work on high-performance solar cells and materials-related problems in additive manufacturing.
In 2014 he returned to the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing to work on low-dimensional materials and materials-science problems in additive manufacturing related to the complex interplay between process and microstructure in determining part quality. Through the years, he has had an instrumental role in IHPC’s efforts to develop a in-house multiscale simulation platform for powder-bed fusion and directed energy deposition additive manufacturing, which is used to help the local and global ecosystem of companies to solve their problems and improve their products in additive manufacturing.
He is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) since 2017.
