Speaker Information

Ed MorrisEd Morris

Driven by the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM), the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII) serves as a nationally recognized additive manufacturing center of innovation excellence, working to transform the U.S. manufacturing sector and yield significant product realization advancements throughout industry.  Under Ed’s leadership, NAMII is focused on accelerating the adoption of additive manufacturing design and production technologies in the U.S. by bridging the gap between basic research and technology development/deployment.  NAMII is the pilot institute for the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) across the country.


McCallum and SchultePeter McCallum & Elliott K. Shulte

Mr. McCallum is an Engineer in the Materials and Process group at Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc. He received his B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from Purdue University in 2010. Mr. Schulte is an Engineer III in the Non-Metallic Materials and Processes group at Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc. He received his B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering from The Ohio State University in 2006 and M.S. in Materials Engineering from the University of Dayton in 2010.


Brian RosenbergerBrian Rosenberger

Mr. Rosenberger has been involved in the research and development of advanced manufacturing materials and processes since 1997 when he founded a research team and created a laboratory to investigate additive manufacturing processes for aircraft structure at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company. He is now leading efforts to transition electron beam Direct Manufacturing into production for F-35 as well as within other Lockheed Martin business areas. He is a graduate of Texas A&M University, with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering.


Brad BellBrad Bell

Brad Bell is an Assistant Professor at The University of Texas at Arlington and the Director of the Digital Fabrication Consortium at UTA. He researches and teaches on the integration of advanced computing technologies into the architectural design process. He has lectured, taught, and written on the uses of such technologies for the past ten years and has been an invited critic at schools of architecture throughout the United States. In addition to his research and teaching responsibilities at UTA, he helped found and is now co-Director of TEX-FAB, a non-profit organization providing a platform for education on digital fabrication and parametric modeling to the professional, academic, and manufacturing communities in Texas.
