Biography

Joanna Wong has been an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Calgary since July 2017.  Previously, she has worked as a Senior Assistant at the ETH Zurich, as the Principal Scientist of a Boston-based start-up company, and as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the EMPA Dübendorf in Switzerland.

Her research focuses on developing materials and cost-effective processes for specific engineering applications.  In the past, this has included fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composites for automotive applications, superhydrophobic and omniphonic coatings for water management, silica aerogels for building insulation, ferroelectrets for sensors and actuators, sputtering processes for semiconductor devices, and molecular storage devices.  Currently, her research is on developing different manufacturing processes for fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composites such as additive manufacturing, pultrusion, filament winding, and stamp forming.
