Research Assistant Professor

Project: Microscale Electrical FFF


I am a research assistant professor currently involved in developing field flow fractionation (FFF) based microchromatography systems and on-chip detection schemes for the development of basic platform for micro total analysis systems. Micro separation systems under study are capable of separating soluble and colloidal sample ranging from few nanometers to several microns and can be used for detection and size analysis or sample preparation for further downstream processing. These 25 mm in height, 2 mm wide and 5 cm long FFF devices use a variety of driving force which include electrical, thermal, dielectrophoretic in combination or alone. My work is related to devise the experimental methods to study not so well understood aspects of these systems, improvement in existing systems and development of new products.
