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 (also call 3D printing).  Our key expertise lies in learning-based control algorithms, sensor development, and system design.  

The HRL was established in December of 2012 at the University of Notre Dame and transitioned to the Ohio State University in September of 2016.  HRL members are currenty at both institutions during this transition phase.
