Mahendran Reddy – 3DHEALS Community Manager, NAMIC
Mahendran Reddy is a highly driven professional with 20 years of international professional experience in the creative industries in both the private and public sectors.
As a trained architect and a media personality, he has held key strategic appointments in driving innovation and initiatives in the civil service, notably the establishment of the National Design Centre in Singapore.
At UCT, he has driven the adoption of Additive Manufacturing in its fledgling form in South East Asia mainly in the consumer segment of the business.
At NAMIC, he is actively involved in the adoption of Additive Manufacturing in the Industries by initiating collaborative research projects with Industry and Institutes of Higher Learning.
He brings with him an in-depth knowledge in management, government processes and procurement, design thinking skills and excellent interpersonal and professional competencies.
Dr. Chaw Sing Ho
Dr. Chaw Sing Ho is the co-founding Managing Director of NAMIC (National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster), a Singapore government initiative to catalyze innovation and scale industrial adoption of additive manufacturing technologies. By focusing on industrial applications and translational R&D, together with commercial strategies to co-create innovative products and services, the national initiative aims to position Singapore as one of the leading digital manufacturing hubs in the era of digitalization and smart factories. Since its inception two years ago, NAMIC has raised more than $24 million in public-private funding to support various AM initiatives across industry verticals.
Prior to NAMIC, he oversaw IP Innovation Strategic Partnerships at HP Singapore. Before that, he was the global head of manufacturing supply chain operations and product innovation for the consumer inkjet supplies business in HP. Chaw Sing started his career in the semiconductor industry with Chartered Semiconductor and Globalfoundries, where he undertook various leadership and customer-facing roles in technology development and engineering operations.
Chaw Sing holds a doctorate in Electrical and Computer Engineering and a Bachelor’s (honors) degree in Electrical Engineering majoring in Microelectronics from the National University of Singapore (NUS). He is an avid inventor with several US/international patents. An advocate for 3D Printing and its role in the new economy, he has spoken in various forums and workshops. He mentors a number of start-ups in the digital and healthcare space. He sits on a number of advisory and expert committees and is an appointed mentor under the GE Digital ASEAN Startup and Partner Program. He is personally interested in nurturing deep tech start-ups, as well as advancing STEM education and engineering as a profession. In his free time, he enjoys sports, movies, reading and spending time with his family.
Dr. Chen Ching Kit
Dr. Ching Kit Chen completed his undergraduate medical studies at the National University of Singapore and post-graduate training in Paediatrics and Paediatric Cardiology in Singapore. He subsequently did a fellowship in pediatric heart failure, mechanical circulatory support and heart transplantation at the Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Canada. During his 2-year fellowship, he participated in a range of research projects resulting in numerous abstracts and publications. Upon returning to Singapore, he has started a pediatric advanced heart failure program (including mechanical circulatory support for children) in KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital and has successfully established a pediatric heart transplant and mechanical cardiac support program in Singapore. His clinical areas of interest cover dilated cardiomyopathy, exercise echocardiography in cardiomyopathy and congenital heart disease, and fetal cardiovascular flow dynamics, while research areas of expertise and experience include 3D printing of heart models, exercise echocardiography, and fetal cardiology.
Sean Looi is the General Manager of Creatz3D Pte Ltd, the authorized distributor of Stratasys™ 3D printing systems and materials in Singapore, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Creatz3D’s additive manufacturing solutions also include Arcam™ for production of metal components as well as Materialise™ Rapid Prototyping Softwares.
Despite majoring in MSc Finance, Sean’s passion for 3D printing opened the door of opportunity of distributing 3D printing technologies in 2007. His knowledge in various manufacturing practices placed him in a favorable position to advice on advanced solutions for direct digital manufacturing.
Sean’s accumulated technical experience with a variety of different 3D printing machines, technologies, and applications, across all industry sectors, helped him to gain foresight into the macroeconomy of additive manufacturing potential.
In return, Sean has been actively helping companies various sectors think more critically, innovate better to improve workflow and is highly respected in the local Additive Manufacturing committee. With over 6 years of experience in the industry, Sean is a regularly invited keynote speaker in various local institutions and events.
Shweta Agarwala is a researcher with Singapore Centre for 3D printing at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. She holds Ph.D. in Electronics Engineering from National University of Singapore, Singapore. Her research is aimed at developing materials and devices for bioelectronic in healthcare applications, and printed electronics for wearables, sensors and smart packaging. The roadmap employs 3D printing route of an aerosol jet, inkjet, and bio-printing to fabricate nano-electronic and bioelectronic devices. Her research is multidisciplinary in nature and provides a useful link between electronics, material science, manufacturing, and biotechnology, thus trying to solve real-life problems.
