I have been working throughout the last 11 years in the field of microfluidic research and development for life science applications. This included extended activities in the field of design analysis, prototype design, fabrication and test as well as project generation management and team management. Typical areas of applications have been the development of diagnostic devices for drug detection in saliva, cultivation of stem cells, in vitro fertilization and cell-based assays in the field of cancer research. But also large-scale fluidic simulations of high velocity turbulent flow in maritime devices have been part of my work in function as Senior Consultant at the Danish Technological Institute. 

At the Department for Chemical and Biochemical Engineering I am responsible for the microfluidic activities of the PROCESS group. We are currently developing microbioreactors for biotechnological and pharmaceutical processes.
