Nam Trung Nguyen's Biography

Nam Trung Nguyen, Professor/Director, Griffith University

Nam-Trung Nguyen received his Dip-Ing, Dr Ing and Dr Ing Habil degrees from Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany, in 1993, 1997 and 2004, respectively. In 1998, he was a postdoctoral research engineer in the Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center (University of California at Berkeley, USA). From 1999 to 2012, he was a faculty member of the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) of Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore. Since February 2013, Dr. Nguyen has been serving as a Professor and the Director of Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre at Griffith University. His research is focused on microfluidics, nanofluidics, micro/nanomachinin technologies, micro/nanoscale science, and instrumentation for biomedical applications. He published over 260 journal papers and filed 8 US patents, of which 3 were granted. Among the books he has written, the first and second editions of the bestseller "Fundamentals and Applications of Microfluidics" co-authored with S. Wereley were published in 2002 and 2006, respectively. The second edition of the bestselling book "Micromixer" was published by Elsevier in 2012. Dr. Nguyen is a Fellow of ASME and a Member of IEEE.

Microfluidics is rich in multi-physics phenomena, which offer fundamentally new capabilities in the manipulation and detection of biological particles. Most current microfluidic applications are based on hydrodynamic, electrokinetic, acoustic and optic actuation. Implementing these concepts requires bulky external pumping/valving systems and energy supplies. The required wires and connectors make their fabrication and handling difficult. The use of magnetism would provide a wireless solution for this need. Micro magnetofluidics provides a convenient and wireless way for control and manipulation of fluid flow in the microscale.This talk presents recent interesting phenomena in both continuous-flow and digital mciro magnetofluidics.
