Seminar on “The role of erythrocyte size and shape in microchannel fluid dynamics”

Event Description

A technical seminar on “The role of erythrocyte size and shape in microchannel fluid dynamics” was organized at 2 pm, Monday, 11th December 2017 in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, BUET.  The talk was presented by Dr. Dorian Liepmann, Professor, Departments of Bioengineering and Mechanical Engineering, UC Berkeley, CA, USA. He is an authority on bio-MEMS and micromachines related to fluid mechanics.  In addition, Professor Liepmann also participated in a lively interactive session with the students where he discussed many topics including Biomedical Engineering as a field of study, research methodology etc. 
Dr. Liepmann’s research interests include BioMEMS, microfluid dynamics, experimental biofluid dynamics, hemodynamics associated with valvular heart disease and other cardiac and arterial flows. He received his Ph.D. from UC San Diego in Applied Mechanics. Prior to joining the faculty at the UC Berkeley, Professor Liepmann had ten years of industrial research experience at the Jet Propulsion Lab and the Institute for Non-Linear Science at UC San Diego. He joined the faculty at UC Berkeley in 1992. At UC Berkeley, he was Chair of the Department of Bioengineering from 2004 to 2009 and held the Lester John and Lynne Dewar Distinguished Professorship in Bioengineering from 2001 to 2005. He is also the co-director of the Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center and vice chair of undergraduate affairs.
