We pursue research in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Themajority of our work is in the areas microfluidics and sensingtechnology. We investigate flow physics of complex microflows, anddevelop microflow control strategies as well as microflowcharacterization methods. We develop new sensing concepts forenvironmental sensing and for biomedical applications. Other workfocuses on microoptical devices and the development of functionalmaterial […]
