Google Scholar Profile

Goran’s research is focused of fabrication of emulsions and smart particles using droplet microfluidic and membrane devices for applications in healthcare and environmental engineering, food engineering, molecular biology, and chemistry. His group exploits physicochemical and chemical phenomena/processes such as phase separation, molecular self-assembly, free-radical polymerisation, nanoprecipitation, crystallisation, ionic crosslinking, and molecular imprinting to tailor composition, morphology and microstructure of fabricated materials.

Guido Bolognesi

Lecturer

Google Scholar Profile

Guido's research interests lie in the experimental investigation of the physico-chemical behaviour of soft matter (such as colloids, droplets, bubbles) and fluid flows at the micrometer length scale with an interdisciplinary approach based on his expertise in mechanics, fluid dynamics, optics, micro- and nano-technology, interface and colloid science.

GROUP MEMBERS

Naval Singh

PhD Student

1st Supervisor: Guido Bolognesi

2nd Supervisor: Goran Vladisavljević

Email: n.sigh@lboro.ac.uk

Naval’s expertise is on exploring the phoretic effects within a microfluidic environment. His research work focuses on diffusiophoresis that harnesses the chemical energy from solute concentration gradients leading to particle motion without the use of an external field. The microchannels are fabricated by photo-/soft-lithography techniques to explore diffusiophoresis for passively manipulating synthetic and biological colloidal particles and is characterized via confocal microscopy. This novel approach of particle handling in a lab-on-a-chip device by solute driven transport can unlock potential applications in point of care industry, drug delivery, biosensing, and food industry.

Tymele Deydier

PhD Student

1st Supervisor: Goran Vladisavljević

2nd Supervisor: Guido Bolognesi

Email: t.m.p.deydier@lboro.ac.uk

Tymele’s research focuses on the microfluidic production of drug-loaded biodegradable microparticles for improving the treatment of cardiovascular disease. The droplets are generated using the Telos 3D flow-focusing microfluidic platform by Dolomite Microfluidics at high throughputs. The size, phase separation kinetics and morphology between the polymer and the drug and the drug release rate of the particles are characterized after production.
