2019 KY NANO + Additive Manufacturing Symposium Keynote Speaker

Edward Kinzel received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in 2003, 2005, and 2010, respectively. His graduate work was focused on laser-based micro/nano fabrication including Laser Forward Transfer and Selective Laser Sintering of electronics as well as near-field direct-write nanolithography with sub-100 nm resolution. Following PhD, he was a postdoc in the Infrared Systems Laboratory (UCF:CREOL/UNCC) focusing on the design and application IR antennas, FSS/metasurfaces and their observation with Near Field Scanning Optical Microscopy. From 2012-2019 he was an was an Assistant/Associate Professor at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. In 2019, he joined the faculty of the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Notre Dame.

Dr. Kinzel’s current research includes practical nanofabrication of FSS/metasurfaces for controlling thermal transport, additive manufacturing of glass for optical applications, and applying FSS/metasurfaces as well as IR/optical antennas as sensing elements and for energy harvesting.  Dr. Kinzel is a member of ASME, SPIE, and IEEE and has authored/co-authored over 40 journal papers.
