Cristian Soitu

DPhil Student


Cristian received his MEng in Mechanical Engineering from University of Aberdeen in 2016 with a research focus on stochastic methods for fluid flow simulation. He then joined Prof. Ed Walsh's lab at University of Oxford where he's been working on developing the next generation of microfluidic devices.

Awards and Prizes

SLAS Innovation Award 2019

Research Interests

Cristian's current research is trying to exploit the dominance of interfacial forces at the microscale to develop a microfluidic platform that accommodates cell- and organism-based assays in biology.
