Dr Navid Kashaninejad received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Mechanical Engineering, in 2006 and 2008, respectively. After winning the prestigious SINGA scholarship from the Singapore Agency for Science, Research and Technology (A*STAR), he completed his PhD studies in 2013 under the supervision of Professor Nam-Trung Nguyen at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. During his PhD studies, he mainly focused on the design and fabrication of various microfluidic devices and fundamentally investigated the fluid mechanics of flow through microchannels. In particular, he introduced a new parameter, termed eccentricity, that could alter the contact angle and drag reduction capabilities of superhydrophobic microchannels. In 2016, he was selected as a distinguished scientist from INEF and awarded a full scholarship and research funding to pursue postdoctoral studies at Sharif University of Technology. He also has over two years of experience as a postdoctoral researcher at Griffith University and the University of Technology Sydney. Dr Kashaninejad has demonstrated high-quality multidisciplinary research output in microfluidics, especially in organ-on-a-chip and disease modelling. Apart from his academic experience, he worked as a senior product development engineer in a microfluidic company and got acquainted with commercialisation and scaled-up challenges of microfluidic systems for industrial applications. Currently, he is a full-time Research Fellow at Queensland Micro and Nanotechnology Centre (QMNC) and works as a team leader in an industrial project in partnership with IMCRC.
