Zahra Barikbin


Zahra obtained her BSc in Chemical Engineering (Petroleum) from Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT, Tehran Polytechnic) in Iran and her MASc in Chemical Engineering (Biotechnology) from AUT in collaboration with National University of Singapore (NUS). She worked on "Non-invasive Online Transmittance Measurements and Spectroscopy in Microfluidic Reactors" for her MASc thesis. She later obtained her  PhD from Singapore-MIT Alliance (A program alliance between National University of Singapore and Massachusetts Institute of Technology ) where she worked on "Droplet Microfluidic with Ionic Liquids for Chemical Analysis and Separations". For her PostDoctoral research, she works on high throughput microfluidic systems for controlled generation of vascularized hydrogels.

Byeong-Ui Moon


Byeong-Ui obtained his BASc degree from the Departments of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering & Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (dual major) from the Gyungsang National University, and his MASc degree from the Department of Electronics at the Kyungpook National University, South Korea. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Pharmacy Department at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. At the Guenther lab, he developed a high-throughput microfluidic approach for organ-based functional screens.
