Rossana Iturbide joined the group in the fall 2021 as a new PhD student, and will be co-supervised by Professor Sihong Wang in BME. Rossana got her bachelor’s degree in Nuclear Engineering at MIT, and her masters degree in Mechanical Engineering at CCNY. Welcome!
Malgorzata Dwulat joined the group in the fall 2021 as a new PhD student, co-supervised by Prof. Sihong Wang in BME. She got her bachelor’s and masters degrees from University of Gdansk & Medical University of Gdansk, Poland, in Biotechnology. She also conducted research at Humboldt University in Berlin and Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology in Berlin as an exchange student or research intern. She is a Fulbright scholar receiving the “Fulbright Graduate Student Award” that will partially support her PhD study at CCNY. Welcome!
Congratulations to Dr. Chunsheng Wen on his new postdoc position at NJIT! We appreciate his contribution to the group on several projects and wish him the best in his new job!
Three students from local high schools joined the group for 4-week summer research through the CCNY College Now STEM Research Academy.
Dr. Fan appreciates the support from NSF to our project entitled “Microfluidic development of dual-gel culture matrices for studying effects of interstitial flow on cellular behaviors.” This project will develop and use new ”dual-gel“ dual-porosity biomaterials to investigate the effects of interstitial flow on cellular behaviors. We will also initiate and organize educational outreach activities to improve mentoring quality to our students and bring science of soft matter and biotechnology to local families.
On October 13, Dr. Fan gave a talk at Benjamin Levich Institute seminar entitled “How flow-driven transport of soft particles Influence Effective Permeability of Porous Media”.
On September 24, 2020, Dr. Fan gave a talk at the ME department seminar entitled “Understanding transport in porous media with microfluidic model systems”.
Our new paper ” Effect of flow profiles on the flow subjected to oscillation forcing: an example of droplet mobilization in constricted tubes” in collaboration with Dr. Wen Deng’s group at Missouri S&T is now published online on Journal of Hydrology.
