We are a group of experimentalists dedicated to solving problems at the interface of engineering, soft matter, and biology! The tool we use is microfluidics. Applications of our work include biochemical sensing and diagnostics, water and energy sustainability.

Open Positions. We are seeking highly motivated postdocs and students in broad areas of engineering, applied physics, biophysics, and analytical chemistry. Please email Prof. Sindy Tang your full CV indicating your background, research interests, and publications.
