Welcome to the home page of the Particle Microfluidics Group. We are based at the Department of Chemical Engineering of Loughborough University. Our research focuses on the production and manipulation of functional particles in micron-scale flows for the investigation of their fundamental properties and behaviour as well as for the development of new applications in the healthcare, food and energy sectors.
The group is attending the APS DFD Meeting

We discovered a new physical mechanism whereby steady state salt gradients are exploited to trap, accumulate and release colloidal particles within the dead-end cavities of microstructured silicon surfaces. These findings will open new avenues of research on soft matter as well as chemical and biological systems, where solute concentration gradients and flows in confined geometries are ubiquitous.
Novel cost effective, versatile, reconfigurable, reusable and easy to assemble glass capillary microfluidic devices were developed and used to generate micro/nano-materials with controlled size and morphology.
