Wilfredo Moscoso-Kingsley, PhD

Dr. Wilfredo Moscoso-Kingsley is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at Wichita State University. He holds several degrees from Purdue University, including MSIE, 2003, MSE, 2008 and PhD, 2008. His experience is in machine tool design and experimental mechanics. More specifically, he has contributed to the development of constrained machining as a severe plastic deformation method to refine grains in metal alloys and to produce non-basal textures in hexagonal closed-packed metals. He was also part of a team that developed special tool holders to retrofit existing machine tools. These tools enabled metal machining under the application of controlled vibrations that improved chip removal and lubricant penetration into the chip-tool contact zone. More recently, his work has focused on the determination of the temperature distribution at the chip-tool interface in the machining of titanium and nickel super alloys. Dr. Moscoso-Kingsley has coauthored numerous patents and scientific articles. He was co-recipient of the 2010 R&D 100 award, and of the Indiana State Winner-Clean Energy Challenge 2012 award. He also was a LASPAU-Fulbright scholar.
