Ian Swyer- Ph.D. Student


Hello there,

I received my undergraduate and master’s degrees from the Department of Chemical Engineering at Queen’s University. During my undergraduate times, those many years ago, a man who would later become one of my closest friends started talking about a lecture titled “There’s plenty of room at the bottom”. Ever since this I have been drawn to smaller worlds and now find myself in the Wheeler Microfluidics Laboratory as a Ph. D. student. My current project concerns preforming organic synthesis using a digital microfluidic platform and all the problems contained therein, and hence it should be a lot of fun.

On a more personal note I enjoy reading, arguing with friends, and playing video games with those friends I can no longer see.
