Researching the future of manufacturing at I-Form, Dr Vivek Mahato believes intelligent systems can help to further reduce waste and improve product quality. After achieving a bachelor’s degree, Dr Vivek Mahato started his career as a web developer in India. But his interest in researching data science drew him to Ireland.


This led him to complete a master’s degree in University College Dublin, followed by a PhD in machine learning in additive manufacturing (more commonly known as 3D printing) at I-Form, the Science Foundation Ireland research centre for advanced manufacturing. While UCD is the lead institution for I-Form, its research spans other academic partners, including Dublin City University (DCU). It’s here that Mahato took up a postdoctoral position in order to extend the research he began under his PhD. ‘Curiosity, along with an aptitude for coding, propels my research career in machine learning’ – DR VIVEK MAHATO What inspired you to become a researcher? I see myself back in fifth grade attending a class of Mr Sanjay Adhikary, our science teacher. His teaching excellence and captivating stories drove me to be curious. As I grew up, I delved more into finding new avenues […]
