Dr Shareen Chan

Swinburne University of Technology

Dr Shareen S.L. Chan completed her Bachelor of Engineering (Honours, Mechanical Engineering) at the National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore, in 2009. She worked in standards development; then for 9 years in industry as a mechanical engineer and assistant laboratory manager at TÜV SÜD PSB, on quality assurance of consumer products and medical devices.

In 2018, she moved to Melbourne, Australia, where she completed her PhD in Engineering from the University of Melbourne (Chemical and Biomedical Engineering) in 2023. Her doctoral thesis encompassed the topics of Additive Manufacturing (direct ink writing), colloidal and ceramic processing, rheology and bone tissue engineering. In 2023-2024, Shareen conducted research as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Melbourne on spray atomisation and freeze drying of ceramic and MAX phase materials with the aim of improving flowability of feedstocks for powder-based Additive Manufacturing techniques.

Shareen joined the SEAM team as a pos9tdoctoral research fellow at Swinburne University in 2024. She primarily collaborates with SEAM’s industrial partners on surface engineering projects, particularly in Additive Manufacturing via cold-spray and high-speed laser cladding (EHLA) for repair and refurbishment. Within these collaborations, she assists with process development and characterisation, as well as research student supervision and training. Her passion for education also extends to mentoring the younger generations, especially females, in the STEM fields.
