Michael A Sebok

Post-Doctoral Research Associate - Robotics & Automation in Additive Manufacturing

Michael Sebok is a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Manufacturing Automation and Controls Group located at the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF) within Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His current primary research is focused on process development and controls for Wire-Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) systems. This work includes improving existing process controls to increase reliability, process development and research for novel materials, and streamlining the CAD to part process to reduce required design inputs.

Dr. Sebok received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering (2023) from the University of Delaware and his BSME (2016) from The College of New Jersey. His doctoral work focused on modeling and planning for multi-agent systems, specifically the creation of a hybrid systems-derived model for planning in collaborative heterogeneous robotic systems. His research interests include development of novel additive manufacturing processes, robust process control for large-scale additive, and multi-agent robotic control and coordination.
