Microfluidic, Biomaterial processing
A new device comprising of two cross-flowing devices operating in series was assembled to generate relatively high productive size-controllable monodispersed microbubbles for extensive applications such as microbubbles as leavening agents in food industry, oxygen mass transfer intermediates in marine products, ultrasound contrast agents in diagnostic and drug delivery carriers in therapeutic.
Xinyue Jennifer Jiang was born in China and speaks two languages. She graduated from University of Hertfordshire with a first honour degree in mechanical engineering and then pursued her PhD in Mohan Edirisinghe’s biomaterial processing lab at University College London.
Her paper “Combining microfluidic devices with coarse capillaries to reduce the size of monodisperse microbubbles” was published in Royal Society Chemistry Advances. She won the best presentation prize of biomechanical engineering group in UCL PhD conference (with great help from her supervisors Professor Mohan Edirisinghe and the lovely, beautiful lady Dr. Maryam Parhizcar). Jennifer spent one month volunteering in a Nepalese orphanage house under the Australian NGO programme IVHQ. She has also studied at the Dong-A University in Korea as part of an exchange programme.
