New colleague: Riley Reese

Riley recently joined AMSYSTEMS Center in March and is focusing on 3D printing in medical and pharma. After seeing AMS’ automated manufacturing platform, PrintValley, he was convinced this was the vehicle for mass customization of end-use parts. Motivated to further develop this technology and explore immediate applications, Riley joined the AMSYSTEMS Center team as a program manager.

Prior to AMSYSTEMS Center, Riley cofounded a company, Arevo, which develops 3D printed composites. Located in Silicon Valley, Arevo introduced advanced materials, intelligent software, and deposition technology to print end-use production parts. Riley also worked at Stryker as an advanced senior quality engineer integrating surgeon feedback into device design prior to launch. Riley first discovered 3D printing during his master’s research on electrospun heart tissue scaffolds. He studied at UC Berkeley, where he received a B.S. in Bio-engineering and Materials Science and Engineering and an M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering.
