Dr. Jeremy L. Rickli received his B.S. and M.S. Degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Technological University in 2006 and 2008 and received his Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech prior to joining Wayne State in 2013. At Wayne State, he has created the Manufacturing and Remanufacturing Systems Laboratory (MaRSLab). MaRSLab targets fundamental and applied research in manufacturing and remanufacturing processes and systems while encouraging considerations for sustainability and life-cycle thinking in design, manufacturing, use, and recovery. Specific research thrusts include: transforming manufacturing quality monitoring and remanufacturing core condition assessment via automated laser line scanning systems; remanufacturing core management considering uncertain core quality, quantity, and timing; and integrating design for disassembly and remanufacturing into CAD/CAM tools. He has collaborated in the past with industrial partners on projects involving residual stresses in lightweight aluminum alloy side rails, manufacturing process simulation, and enhancing end-of-life truck acquisition decisions. Dr. Rickli is also actively involved in outreach activities with Athletes for Charity STEM Youth Literacy Program, which provides Detroit Public Schools with STEM educational sessions.
Yinlun Huang is Professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. His research has been focused on the fundamental study of multiscale complex systems science and sustainability science, with applied study on sustainable nanomaterial development, integrated design of sustainable product and process systems, and manufacturing sustainability. He has published widely in these areas. He directs the NSF funded Sustainable Manufacturing Advances in Research and Technology Coordination Network.
