Hoelzle Research Lab: Research


Overview: Controlled systems for human health and advanced manufacturing

HRL Lab Logo

The research team in the Hoelzle Research Lab (HRL) investigates problems in dynamics and control for application to advanced manufacturing and microsystem development.  Broadly classified, we are interested in high-value added microscale manufacturing applications with impacts in both human health and sensor technology.  The key applications are engineered synthetic tissues, microfluidic devices for studying mechanobiology, and products made by additive manufacturing (AM, also call 3D printing).  Our key expertise lies in learning-based control algorithms, sensor development, and system design.

Small disclaimer: Some of our on-going research projects have publications in progress and we unfortunately have to describe the research in vague terms on this public venue.  If you are interested in learing more about our latest developments, please set up a meeting with Prof. Hoelzle and the members working on the project.
