Dr Christabel Tan graduated with a BEng (Hons) in Electronic Engineering in 2000 and an MPhil the following year from the University of Manchester Institute of Science & Technology. She was awarded her PhD in active microfluidic mixer system to achieve ratio-metric, independent, alternate injection for rapid mixing in 2006. She is a Chartered Engineering, obtained an MBA in 2016 and a NEBOSH H&S qualification in 2017.
She has over 17 years of commercial and public-funded project experience in the area of multidisciplinary microsystems engineering instrumentation, sensors and microengineering. She is a microengineering expert with over 21 years of developing unique microfabrication system solutions for various engineering and biological applications. Her primary research area is in mems, sensors, microsystems especially microengineered systems and devices mainly for, but not limited to, bio-applications. With particular interest in the area of novel fabrication process development, mainly around the development of novel microfabrication techniques and processes for mems, microfluidic devices, systems and applications. She is an experience PI and regularly contributes and manage research activties on both commerically and publically funded projects.
Christabel is currently the Deputy Head of Engineering and manages the development and fabrication of microengineered devices and microsystems development.
