Sona Dadhania Technology Analyst

Bio
Sona is a Technology Analyst at IDTechEx. Sona's work at IDTechEx focuses primarily on 3D printing, with secondary interests in advanced materials and healthcare. Over the past three years, Sona has extensively researched 3D printing materials and the 3D printing industry landscape while at the University of Pennsylvania in the US and Imperial College London in the UK.
Education
Sona received her BSE degree (Bachelor of Science in Engineering) from the University of Pennsylvania in 2019, where she majored in Materials Science and Engineering and minored in Engineering Entrepreneurship. In her first year at UPenn, she was awarded the inaugural Science Ambassador Scholarship from Cards Against Humanity, a full-tuition scholarship for a woman pursuing STEM studies. In her last two years, she became extensively interested in the materials science underpinning 3D printing. This led to a senior thesis project on a novel conductive polymer resin to 3D print force sensors for applications in orthopedics and commercial footwear. To pursue her interest in 3D printing further, she came to Imperial College London in 2019 to earn her MSc in Advanced Materials and Engineering, where she was supported by the Thouron Award, a fully funded fellowship for post-graduate studies in the UK. During her time at Imperial, she extensively researched the 3D printing of a bioactive hybrid material for application in bone implants and cartilage replacements.
Research Field
Sona is working on 3D printing research at IDTechEx, extensively studying the markets, materials, and technologies behind the industry. Aside from 3D printing, she is interested in researching advanced materials and materials in healthcare.
