Heidi Piili is working as senior research scientist in Additive Manufacturing and Laser Materials Processing in Research group of Digital Manufacturing and Surface Engineering (DMS) of Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering of Faculty of Technology at University of Turku, Finland.

She started in this position 8/2021. She is doing academic and industrial R&D (national and international) in field of additive manufacturing (i.e. 3D printing) of metals, biobased materials and polymers, laser materials processing, camera and sensor based quality assurance and process control and novel industrial applications of additive manufacturing. She also educates B.Sc., M.Sc. and D.Sc students and trains industrial partners in same field of science. Piili is also doing supervising of B.Sc., M.Sc. and D.Sc. theses.

Piili is docent in LUT University in field of "Monitoring of additive manufacturing of metallic materials" and will get during beginning of year 2022 docentship from Oulu University, Finland in field of "Industrial Applications of Laser Materials Processing and Additive Manufacturing".

Piili is currently also doing her second doctoral thesis: ”Optimization of Electrochemical Systems Manufactured by Laser Based Powder Bed Fusion for Separation Technology” in Department of Purification and Separation Technology, LUT University, Finland (will be completed 6/23).

Piili has more than 19 years’ experience in laser materials processing and more than 13 years’ experience in additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing (3DP). Piili was working with industrial additive manufacturing at EOS Finland for one year in 2017.

Piili has participated to several academic and industrial projects both national and international connections. She has as well done education and training and development of them in field of laser materials processing and AM3DP more than 19 years’.

Piili has 39 peer reviewed articles, 2 chapter in research books, 58 conference articles, 29 other publications (totally 128 publications). Her H-index is 10 (Scopus), 13 (Google Scholar) and number of citations (Scopus): 513, (Google Scholar): 1206.
