David Hoelzle received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Ohio State University in 2005. He continued his mechanical engineering education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), receiving his M.S. degree in 2007 and PhD in 2011, both from the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering. After receiving his PhD, he completed a post-doctoral research appointment in the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Hoelzle began an appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame in December of 2012. He is interested in control theory applied to manufacturing robotics and micro-devices; applications of interest are the manufacture of advanced architecture artificial bone scaffolds and bio-microfluidic devices and bio-MEMS for medical diagnoses.
