Alinaghi Salari - Postdoctoral Fellow


Ali obtained an M.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, where he worked on microbubbles. At the University of Calgary and during his M.Sc. studies in Electrical Engineering, he developed new microelectrode designs for electrokinetic techniques suitable for fluid manipulations in lab-on-a-chip devices. His Ph.D. studies at Ryerson University were focused partly on fundamental studies on the generation and breakup of dispersions in microfluidic channels. Also, he used an acoustofluidic platform for studying the response of biological cells in an acoustic field inside a microfluidic device. His academic achievements have been recognized by multiple awards including the prestigious Governor General’s Academic Gold Medal. His research interests range from fundamental microscale fluid manipulation to developing new lab-on-a-chip strategies at the interface of biology and engineering. In addition, he has served the broader scientific community by acting as a peer-reviewer and guest editor for various scientific journals..

Outside the lab, Ali spends his spare time watching movies and doing outdoor activities.
