Dr David W. Inglis

Dr Inglis received a B.Sc. in Engineering Physics from The University of Alberta in 2001 and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 2007. He was an Australian Postdoctoral Fellow in the Physics Department of Macquarie University from 2008 to 2011. He is now a Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering at Macquarie University. Dr Inglis research interests lie in microfabrication for medicine and biology. He is well known for work on deterministic lateral displacement separations and has published more than 30 research articles and patents that have been cited more than 2000 times.

Dr Lianmei Jiang

Dr Jiang is currently a research fellow at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) under the supervision of Professor Jim Piper and Professor Nicki Packer at Macquarie University. She received her PhD degree from École Normale Supérieure de Paris (ENS-Paris) in 2013. Prior to moving to Sydney in 2015, Dr Jiang was an industry-academic joint researcher at bioMérieux and ESPCI ParisTech in France. Her project focused on the development of the droplet-based microfluidic system for both fundamental and applied research in microbial diagnostics. Her skill-set includes the design, fabrication, integration and implementation of microfluidic devices for cell culture, manipulation and analysis at the single-cell level. Her current research interests involve single-cell droplet microfluidics, microdroplet based nano/microparticle functionalization, and miniaturized sensing devices for biomarker detection.

Mr Hangrui Liu

Henry embarked his PhD at CNBP of Macquarie University (MQ) from June 2018. His expertise includes DNA sequencing related techniques and genomics analysis. In his project, he will concentrate on 1) isolation and detection exosomes via microfluidics; 2) and the analysis of exosomes secreted by single cells via microfluidics. This project is expected to contribute insights into the cancer research along with the current omics studies.
