"Live well, love lots, and laugh often."

Research profile

Shuaizhong Zhang is a Postdoctoral fellow in Microsystems group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He is now focusing on the fabrication of magnetic artificial cilia and their applications in antifouling of water-submerged surfaces and microparticle manipulation in lab-on-a-chip devices. This work mainly consists of microfabrication technology, microfluidics, and magnetism. Zhang's main personal research interests are advanced mcirofabrication technology, microfluidics, lab-on-chips, and bionics. 

Academic background

Shuaizhong Zhang studied at Qingdao University where he received his BSc in Mechatronic Engineering in 2012. Then he moved to Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) to continue his study in Mechatronic Engineering, and he received his MSc in 2015. Afterward, he moved to the Eindhoven University of Technology as a doctoral candidate under the supervision of prof. Jaap den Toonder, and he obtained his doctoral diploma in 2019.
