Dr. Anurag Purwar is a Research Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stony Brook University. His research is in Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing, Mechanisms and Robotics, and Application of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in Design and Manufacturing of Mechanical Systems.


Dr. Purwar is an award-winning teacher, researcher, TEDx speaker, and inventor of several technologies, some of which are available as products in the market. He has received several best paper and outstanding research awards, excellence in teaching awards, and the top 100 design awards for his inventions. He received the SUNY FACT2 award, two SUNY Research Foundation Technology Accelerator Fund (TAF) awards, A.T. Yang award for Theoretical Kinematics, and Presidential Award for Excellence in Teaching.


He has led more than 125 technical projects in mechanisms and robotics, wave-, and wind-energy harvesting, physical therapy and rehabilitation devices, aircraft components, and consumer products design, with a cumulative in-cash funding of $4.4M supported by National Science Foundation, industry, NY-state SPIR, NY-state Center for Biotechnology, Sensor-CAT, SUNY Research Foundation, and SUNY Office of Provost. More than 175 students have been supported on these projects.


Dr. Purwar is currently an Associate Editor of the American Society of Mechanical Engineer (ASME) Journal of Computing and Information Science in Engineering and of International Journal of Mechanics Based Design of Structures and Machines and has served as the Conference and Program chair for several ASME international conferences. He has also served as a guest editor for special issues for the ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics and for the ASME Journal of Medical Diagnostics and Therapy. He is an elected member of the ASME Mechanisms and Robotics Committee and of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI).

Special Issue on Geometric Data Processing and Analysis for Advanced Manufacturing

Geometric information, such as three-dimensional (3D) shapes and network topologies, has been increasingly explored in manufacturing research. For example, characterizing geometric information in 3D-printed parts, in-situ or ex-situ, opens opportunities for defect detection, quality improvement, and product customization. However, geometric data mining remains critically challenging. Geometric information is embedded in complex data structures, such as 3D point clouds, graphs, meshes, voxels, high-dimensional images, and tensors, which possess challenges for analysis due to their high-dimensionality, high-volume, unstructured, multimodality characteristics. Additional challenges stem from compromised data quality (e.g., noisy and incomplete data), the need for registration, etc.
