Blog Posts

My blog post gives an overview of the microfluidics industry and its future trends. It also highlights the challenges of commercializing microfluidic products.


  • On Monday 27 September 2021, and as the Applied Mathematics Seminar, I gave a talk with the title of "From Chemical Engineering to Mathematics: Different Tales"

  • As a result of the global COVID19 pandemic, the IPCG forum was taken online with a series of weekly scientific webinars, called the i-PCG 2020 Webinars. Here is my webinar, on Microfluidics and Flow Chemistry

  • My talk for Healthcare Technologies Institute Forum, was on Tuesday 10th November at 10 am. The title was "Microfluidic for health is wealth".
