Dr Warkiani is a lecture at the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and an emerging leader in the field of Microfluidic and Nanotechnology. He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), and undertook postdoctoral training at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (SMART centre). 

Dr Warkiani’s current research activities focus on three key areas of (i) Microfluidics involving the design and development of novel platforms for rare cells sorting and the development of novel 3D devices for investigation of angiogenesis and tumour formation, (ii) Bio-MEMS involving the fabrication and characterisation of novel isopore membranes and the design and development of novel micro PCR chips, and (iii) Rapid prototyping and Tissue engineering involving novel filtration platforms and desktop tumour modelling for drug efficacy screening.

Dr Warkiani is also affiliated with the Australian Centre for NanoMedicine (ACN) and Ingham Institute for Biomedical Research at UNSW.

Current Research Projects:

  1. High-throughput microfluidics cell sorting and synchronization
  2. Single cell biomechanics (CTCs, iRBCs, Fetal cells)
  3. Water treatment using micro-engineered filters
  4. Biomimetic microsystems
  5. Droplet microfluidics
  6. Bioprocessing
