Prof. Knospe has worked on a variety of research problems in control and mechatronics, including magnetic levitation, vibration control, control of machining chatter, and stability and performance of time-delay systems. Recently, his research has focused on the use of capillary interfaces in micromechatronic systems, including electrowetting, capillary force actuation, and liquid-liquid interface sensors. Dr. Knospe has served as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, IEEE Control Systems Magazine, and Mechatronics.
Alex Russomanno, a fourth-year student majoring in mechanical engineering, won gold medals for best oral presentation and best technical content for his lecture on micro-actuators, which he has been researching with Carl Knospe, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering. Russomanno will advance to the finals during the event in Houston.
