Enthusiast lecturer at Swansea University with the vision of transforming the healthcare diagnostics by coupling microfluidic devices and complex flow properties. This ambitious result is currently explored through:
- Rheological and microrheological characterisation of dilute viscoelastic liquids by using novel microfluidic platforms as well as conventional techniques.
- Design polymer solutions to be used as suspending liquids to manipulate the trajectories of particles and cells flowing in microchannels.
- Cell encapsulation in microfluidic devices for single-cell screening
New research areas in line with my vision are continuously identified to account for new developments in applied and theoretical research.
I am a very curious person which loves reading, plays piano, likes landscape photography and likes tv series. I am always open to face new challenges and I am keen to lead other people that share my vision. I act as counsellor for people in need.
