Advenit Makaya is an Advanced Manufacturing Engineer at the European Space Research and Technology Centre of the European Space Agency. He supports the development of promising advanced materials and processes for space applications, in various fields which include surface treatments, joining technologies, additive manufacturing, advanced polymers and in-situ resource utilisation. Advenit previously worked as a Lifing Technologist for Rolls-Royce plc in the U.K., performing structural analysis and lifing assessments of critical parts for large civil aircraft engines. Prior to this industrial experience, Advenit was a postdoctoral researcher at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Nagoya, Japan, supported by the Postdoctoral Fellowship for Foreign Researchers of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. This research consisted of the development of a semi-solid synthesis process for bulk metallic glass matrix composites. Advenit received a PhD in Materials Processing from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm Sweden, performing his thesis on the synthesis of porous metals and rapidly solidified metals. Advenit holds a MSc in Materials Processing from the Royal Institute of Technology and an Engineering degree from Ecole Centrale de Lyon, France.
