Mehdi Mohammadi

University of Calgary Canada

Postdoctoral researcher and senior mechanical engineer with more than 10 years’ experience in various fields such as Lab on a Chip&Disc microfluidics (design, simulation, microfabrication, experimental test), the point of care device developing, Oil and gas industry (project coordinator) and power plant analysis(Energy and exergy analysis). Currently, I is postdoctoral researcher and director of SIMDISC (microfluidic simulation) project in the Biomedical Diagnostic Institute (BDI) at Dublin City University for different application, i.e. RNA extraction, centrifugal analyzer for liver assay, bioassays in whole blood, Point-of- Care applications and ELISA kit. He completed his Ph.D. in the field of Mechanical engineering and Microfluidic systems in the Technical University of Catalonia-BarcelonaTech (UPC) in Barcelona, Spain and during that period, different Lab on chip projects have been implemented by him. His Ph.D. project was focused on design and produce efficient point of care microfluidic chip for blood plasma separation and multiple blood testing (Blood panel) for point of care device using different passive and active microfluidic methods such as: Capillarity, Hydrodynamic, Cross Flow Filtration, Electroosmosis, Dielectrophoresis, DC-iDEP for different application, i.e. separation, lysis, and sorting of nonviable and biological particles (Hepatocyte and blood cells). Three point of care (POC) microfluidic chips have been invented to detect Myocardial infarction (MI) and measuring Thyroid-stimulating, In addition, He has worked for the oil and gas industry as a senior mechanical engineer in process and construction environment in the different positions, i.e. Project coordinator, Piping and mechanical supervisor to fabricate gas refinery (more than 6 years).
