Associate Professor in Additive Manufacturing Management, Faculty of Engineering



Martin Baumers is Associate Professor of Additive Manufacturing Management at the Department of M3 in the Faculty of Engineering.

In his research, Martin focuses on the economics and efficient operation of Additive Manufacturing (AM) and other digital manufacturing technologies. Martin's work concentrates on the development of novel approaches to production costing and workflow optimization. Further areas of interest are network effects, process selection, and shape complexity measurement techniques. Martin also investigates the environmental sustainability of additive processes, with an emphasis on energy consumption, to assess whether AM provides a pathway to more sustainable manufacturing and more benign products.

Martin is passionate about delivering the best possible teaching in his area of expertise. In recognition of this, he has received the Lord Dearing Award for Teaching and Learning in 2022.

Martin Baumers is part of the Centre for Additive Manufacturing Research group
