Robbyn Anand's Biography

Robbyn Anand, Associate Professor, Iowa State University

Robbyn K. Anand is the Suresh Faculty Fellow and Carlyle G. Caldwell Endowed Chair in Chemistry at Iowa State University. Her group has developed methods for circulating tumor cell analysis, electrokinetic enrichment and separation of chemical species within water-in-oil droplets, and more sensitive bioanalysis at arrays of wireless bipolar electrodes. Prof. Anand also founded the Midwest Retreat for Diversity in Chemistry - an annual event aimed at the retention of underrepresented groups in the chemical enterprise.

Droplet-based techniques have had a profound impact in biotechnology, owing to an ability to perform rapid and massively parallel reactions in minute fluid volumes. However, once droplets are formed, their composition can be altered through limited functions including the addition of reagents through droplet merging, which increases droplet volume, and through in-droplet mixing. Further, while droplet contents can be measured through, there remains a need for more versatile methods to probe droplets without significantly altering their contents. In this presentation, we describe a suite of in-droplet electrokinetic methods including de-mixing, mobility-based separations, desalting, and “salting”. Finally, we will share initial results for the measurement of the ionic content of droplets.
