Bryony has worked at IDTechEx since 2017. As part of IDTechEx, Bryony leads research efforts into 3D printing technologies. This includes providing strategic direction of 3D printing research activities, authorship of syndicated research reports, interaction with international subscription clients and leading custom consulting services. Bryony has since broadened the technology areas she covers to include green chemistry including biopolymers, recycling polymer waste and the circular economy. In addition, Bryony supports the Life Sciences department at IDTechEx working on 3D printing in medicine, digital dentistry and technologies to manage chronic neurological conditions. Prior to joining IDTechEx, Bryony worked for the aerospace company Cobham plc as a Project Manager.
Bryony also speaks regularly both at IDTechEx's own events and other external events around the world on a variety of technology topics. Bryony has curated IDTechEx's 3D Printing conferences, running each year in Santa Clara, CA and in Berlin, Germany, as well as curating and presenting at IDTechEx's inaugural 3D Business and Technology Insight forums held in Boston, MA this year.
Bryony is based in Oxfordshire, UK.
Bryony leads IDTechEx's research around markets and enabling technologies for 3D printing and the circular economy. This includes authorship of leading market research and technology scouting reports focusing on several technology and application areas including:
- 3D printing
- 3D printing materials
- 3D printing metals
- 3D printing in the medical and dental industry
- Lightweighting and additive manufacturing in the aerospace and defense industry
- Biobased polymers / bioplastics
- Synthetic biology
- Green technology
Bryony Core has a first class MChem degree from the University of St Andrews and holds a DPhil in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Oxford. During her undergraduate degree, Bryony undertook a yearlong industrial placement with Sasol Technology UK, and her masters project focussed on the synthesis of transition metal initiators for hydroformylation supported by phosphacyclic ligands. Bryony's DPhil research focussed on the synthesis of biodegradable polymers using initiators featuring biocompatible metals. Her research has been published in a peer-reviewed journal, has been presented globally at workshops and conferences, and was awarded additional funding as part of an industrial collaboration.
