Daniel Saloni

Associate Professor

Daniel Saloni is an associate professor in the Department of Forest Biomaterials at North Carolina State University. Before applying to a faculty position at NC State, he was a laboratory manager and research assistant in the Wood Machining and Tooling Research Program at North Carolina State University. Prior to joining NC State, he was an assistant professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and a junior consultant in UCAB Consulting for five years at Andres Bello Catholic University in Caracas, Venezuela.

Saloni received his Ph.D. in Wood Science from the Department of Forest Biomaterials and his Master of Integrated Manufacturing System Engineering degree at North Carolina State University. He also obtained a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering and a master’s degree in project management at Andres Bello Catholic University.

He has published various papers and participated in several conferences on process improvement, supply chain, biomass and bioenergy conversion and additive manufacturing, which are his major research areas.

Saloni is currently an affiliated faculty at the Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics (CAMAL).
