Prof. Andre D.L. Batako is a Reader in Sustainable Advanced Manufacturing Technologies at the General Engineering Research Institute, Liverpool John Moores University. He obtained his BSc. degree (1981) in Mechanical Engineering in Togo and his MSc. degree (1988) in Manufacturing Technology, Machines and Tools in the former Soviet Union. Dr Andre Batako holds several academic and industrial awards that he earned for his work excellence both in academia and in the industry. He is a Chartered Engineer with industrial experience, working as a mechanical engineer, production engineer, engineer technologist, and Lead computer/software developer in car manufacturing. He worked for over ten years in the automotive industry. He returned to research activities to obtain his PhD in Dynamics of the vibro-impact systems at Loughborough University (UK) in 2004. He is currently working at Liverpool John Moores University (UK), where he leads a team of researchers in the field of controlled vibration-assisted high-efficiency machining of new advanced hard-to-machine composites in the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Laboratory. He has developed the World’s First purposely built industrial Resonance High-Efficiency Deep Grinding (HEDG) machine tool. He has a strong link with the industry such as Rolls Royce, Jones and Shipman, Bosch, Fuchs, Airbus Tyrolit, Ford transnission Jaguar Land Rover, and others. His international profile spans from many Universities in Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Poland, Georgia, Germany, and others), to Africa, (Ivory-Coast, Togo, Mali, Chad, Soudan), and to China, and S. Korea. He is professionally fluent in English, French, Russian, written spoken and synchro-translation. Dr. Batako is a reviewer and editor for a number of international journals and publishing houses. He has published over 150 technical, conference and international journal papers, 5 books and 4 book chapters and successfully supervised 20 PhDs in the UK, Europe, and abroad. His expertise encompasses machine tool design, cutting tools and metal machining processes, manufacturing technology and dynamics of vibro-impact systems. He is currently expanding his research activities by conducting new research in natural fibre reinfoece composites, renewable energies and laser applications in industrial manufacturing and plant biology.
