Ronald Henry Hessier

Ronald Henry Heisser is a School of Engineering Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in biohybrid robotics whose work integrates his interests in mechanics and design to study and rationalize machine design principles for systems that bridge micro- and macro-scales. Heisser’s doctoral work centered on using combustion to produce high-power motion in millimeter-scale soft actuators, ultimately enabling him to develop a novel, refreshable Braille display system that is potentially more compact and lower cost than existing Braille technologies. As a postdoc, he will focus on the development of new mechanical components for micro-actuation systems and stretchable interfaces.
