Dr Jincheng Wang
The Forrest Scholarship offered a stimulating and unique opportunity for me to learn from Forrest cohorts and be inspired to make a positive impact on the world. I am deeply honoured to have been awarded the Forrest Scholarship, which provides a lifelong network of connections to the Forrest Research Foundation family.

Jincheng, a mechanical and materials engineer, currently works as a Research Associate at the University of Western Australia. His research focuses on advancing 3D metal printing, specifically titanium alloys, nickel superalloys, and aluminium alloys. He aims to understand the intricate relationship between powder properties, processing parameters, resulting microstructures, defect mitigation, and the mechanical and corrosion properties of materials. The ultimate objective is to enhance their application across diverse sectors, including automotive, biomedical, wastewater treatment, natural gas, and renewable energy. In addition, he has made voluntary contributions to the fields of additive manufacturing and material science by serving as a peer reviewer for over 50 papers across more than 10 scientific journals. He also serves as a Young Editorial Board Member or Guest Editor for journals like Acta Metallurgica Sinica (English Letters), Tungsten, and Micromachines. Jincheng began his Ph.D. study at Edith Cowan University in 2018, supported by the Forrest Research Foundation Scholarship. During his Ph.D., he was supervised by Prof. Laichang Zhang and Prof. Tim Sercombe from the University of Western Australia. In 2021, he received his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering. He then worked as a Research Fellow in additive manufacturing, collaborating with Prof. Graham Schaffer at the University of Melbourne until 2022.
