Glenn Daehn is the Mars G. Fontana Professor of Metallurgical Engineering at The Ohio State University.  His roots in the US Midwest led him to work on the development of technologies and workforce needed of cleaner and more agile manufacturing processes so regions can be largely self-sufficient and locally manufacture what they need - with high quality with minimum waste.  

He is leading technical and workforce projects in the Manufacturing USA Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow (LIFT) Institute and is on the Leadership Council of MForsight, which provides manufacturing policy support to the US government.
