Paul Ivan Bravo Ceralde, an Igorot from Kalinga, graduated with excellent awards from the University of California (UC) Berkeley, USA in 2019.

Ceralde who traces his roots to Tanudan, Kalinga is a product of Ateneo and a recipient of a graduate CHED scholarship grant at UC Berkeley, Berkeley, California, USA.

He earned a Master's Degree in Materials Science and Engineering from what is considered the No. 1 public university in the world and 4th across the board.

Ceralde is currently the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of his own startup company called Morph Microfactories, pioneering the industrial adoption of composite structures through low-cost robotics and digital manufacturing.

"At Morph Microfactories, we are using the Mostly Printed Computerized Numerical Control (MPCNC) robotic platform to automate the fiber placement step of our composite manufacturing process. V1Engineering, the developer and designer of the MPCNC, made the design available to anyone under Creative Commons License with the vision of allowing makers wherever in the world to build their own CNCs," Ceralde explained about his project.

"The reason why Morph exists is to push the envelope in advancing the industrial adoption of carbon fiber composites by delivering at scale cost-effective parts with extensive design latitudes without compromising performance. Instrumental in achieving this goal are low-cost and open-source robots like the MPCNC," he added.

At Morph Microfactories, their goal is to bring the adoption of carbon fiber composite materials to the next level by breaking the ceiling for design limitations, production volume capacity, energy consumption, and overall cost.

The company intends to replace small to medium-dimension parts made from traditional materials such as plastic or metal with our products so that the world can benefit from having a material that is light and strong.

Consumer electronics will be less burdensome to carry around.

Last-mile transportation systems such as e-scooters, bikes, and boards would reap improved power output and extended mileage with lighter components.

Drones and UAVs would achieve longer flight times and distances with less energy consumption from Morph FFW™ parts.
