HRL Laboratories, LLC, is pleased to announce that Hunter Martin has been appointed as the new Director of HRL’s Center for Additive Materials (CAM).  Hunter has been involved in advanced material development for over 10 years and currently leads multiple programs on new alloy and application development in additive manufacturing.

“CAM provides an opportunity to bring industry, academia, and government agencies together to promote collaboration on some of the most difficult problems in additive material science,” Martin said. “As travel begins to normalize, we are eagerly planning our next biennial workshop to build off the success of the one we hosted in 2018 that focused on new material frontiers in additive manufacturing.  After missing 2020, our 2021 workshop will be focused on bringing the multidisciplinary additive community back together to identify and overcome the next material science challenges.”

Martin will replace Tobias Schaedler who served as CAM director for the last 3 years and is moving on as manager of HRL’s Architected Materials and Structures Department.

Hunter earned a BS in Material Science and Engineering at the University of Washington and a PhD in Materials from the University of California, Santa Barbara for his work in microstructure control in crack-susceptible alloys during additive manufacturing.
