Edgar Goluch's Biography

Edgar Goluch, Assistant Professor, Northeastern University

Dr. Edgar Goluch is the DiPietro Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University. Ed received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering with distinction in 2003 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Ed continued his studies at Illinois under the guidance of Dr. Chang Liu, receiving a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2005 and Ph.D. in Bioengineering in 2007. From 2008 to 2010, Ed was a NSF International Research Program Fellow in the group of Dr. Serge Lemay at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. In 2010, Ed accepted a faculty position in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University. Ed received a NSF Broadening Participation Research Initiation Grant in Engineering (BRIGE) Award in 2011. At present, research in the Goluch Group focuses on developing biosensors to analyze bacteria and creating micro/nano-fluidic devices to trap and isolate new bacterial species. Ed has published over 30 peer-reviewed journal articles and conference proceedings in the areas of microfluidics, sensors, and biophysics, which collectively have been cited over 700 times.

Bacteria in nature typically exist as biofilms, complex microbial communities entrenched in a matrix of extracellular substances, not as free swimming individual cells. Biofilms are especially problematic because they protect and facilitate the survival of pathogens in hostile environments, leading to chronic and recurring infections. The Goluch Group investigates the chemical and physical micro-environments that bacterial cells respond to and create by developing and integrating sensing elements inside microfabricated fluidic systems. This talk will describe the development of electrochemical sensors for bacterial analysis and real-time detection of infections, and the use of surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPRi) as a tool for studying bacterial adhesion and removal.
