Dr. Daniel Trimble is an Assistant Professor within the department of Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering at Trinity College Dublin. He is a Principal Investigator within the Science and Technology in Advanced Manufacturing (STAM) research group at Trinity College, a research affiliate of The International Academy of Production Engineering (CIRP).
His research interests and areas of expertise include: Solid State joining of automotive/aerospace grade aluminium alloys; Metal 3D printing through SLM (Selective Laser Melting) of biomedical implant devices; 3D printing of acoustic metamaterial to reduce noise pollution in the aviation sector; Cryogenic micro-machining of biomedical intraocular lens implants; Optimisation of manufacturing processes through in-process sensing i.e. Smart Manufacturing.
Prior to his appointment at Trinity, Dr. Trimble worked in industry as a mechanical design engineer within the pharmaceutical industry and academia at Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT). In 2013, he won an Irish Research Council (IRC) enterprise partnership postgraduate award with DePuy Synthes for two years. This postdoctoral research focused on developing of a finite element model to simulate the machining of biomedical grade cobalt chrome.
