Grant H. Kruger, PhD is an Assistant Research Scientist in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and a Research Investigator in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Michigan. He is passionate about finding novel engineering solutions to problems faced by care providers and believes in translating these solutions into broader practice.

Dr. Kruger received his doctorate in Electrical Engineering in 2006, while working as a Graduate Student Research Assistant and instructor. After obtaining his doctorate, he joined his alma mater as a lecturer to assist in the establishment of their newly formed Mechatronics Department. Thereafter, in 2007 he pursued his postdoctoral studies in Biomedical Informatics at the University of Michigan, S.M. Wu Manufacturing Research Center, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. In 2008 he joined the department as a Research Investigator faculty, before obtaining his current position.

Dr. Kruger has a diverse research background with publications covering areas from Intelligent Manufacturing Systems to Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Kruger's current research focuses on Biomedical Informatics approaches (robotics, software and firmware development, hardware design, algorithms, signal, image and video processing and novel prototype manufacturing) based on Computational Intelligence technologies.
