Dr Ashwin Seshia is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.

Research description

One of the research thrusts in my group is the development of microelectromechanical and microfluidics based platforms for early diagnosis. We also research microfabricated biophysical tools to characterise biological systems at the molecular, cellular and multi-cellular scales.
