Ola Harrysson

Professor

Co-Director of CAMAL

Ola Harrysson joined the ISE department in January of 2002 and is teaching courses related to product development, manufacturing processes, additive manufacturing and biomodeling. Most of his research involves additive manufacturing, specifically the medical applications.

Dr. Harrysson is in charge of the Additive Manufacturing Laboratory (AML) in the ISE department which houses the first Electron Beam Melting (EBM) machine in the world. AML is currently involved in both aerospace and medical related research as well as providing faculty and students with prototyping services. Most of the aerospace related research involves process and material development for the EBM systems while the medical research is concentrated on custom design and direct metal fabrication of novel implants.

Dr. Harrysson has been working for over 10 years with his colleague, Denis Marcellin-Little, who is an orthopedic surgeon at the College of Veterinary Medicine, developing new and innovative implant solutions. The two have pioneered the area of Transdermal Osseointegrated Prosthetics, which is a type of a prosthetic limb that is directly attached to the bone in the stump instead of using an external socket.
