Dr Ehab Saleh


For the past nine years Ehab has worked on developing digital manufacturing technologies for fabricating integrated structures using multi-materials, which include metals, polymers and glasses. Ehab graduated with a PhD degree from the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton, and gained a First Class BEng degree from Brighton University in Digital Electronics Computing and Communications. Before joining the University of Leeds at the future manufacturing processes research group Ehab worked at the centre for additive manufacturing (CfAM) at Nottingham university where he worked on developing multi-material 3D printed structures using various additive manufacturing processes.

Research interests

My current research involves the development of cutting edge multi-functional manufacturing processes for depositing multiple materials to form functional devices. A prime area of my research interest is in developing manufacturing processes for electronics and energy harvesting/storing applications. This includes 3D printing and novel sintering/curing methods of metallic and polymeric inks, inkjet printing of active components (graphene and several other 2D materials), 3D printing of RF metamaterials and additive manufacturing of disruptive photovoltaic materials and multi-functional microfluidic systems.

Student education

I lead the module MECH1206 Design and Manufacture 1 which covers design theory and several key manufacturing processes in addition to computer aided design (CAD) in SolidWorks. I also co-teach additive manufacturing for final year students which covers subjects related to various 3D printing processes and materials.
