Dr. ir. Doubrovski, E.L.

Zjenja Doubrovski is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering.

Academic Background

Zjenja Doubrovski is an Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. He received MSc in Integrated Product Design (Cum Laude) in 2010. In 2016 he obtained his PhD degree on his research on Design for Additive Manufacturing at the TU Delft.

His research is at the intersection of Additive Manufacturing technologies, design methods, and applications. The focus is on multi-material AM, meta-materials, and smart mechanics which provide new opportunities for mechatronics. The research and education in this field at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering are expanding by contributions from graduation students and close collaboration with the 3D printing industry.
