Dr Christabel Tan


Dr Christabel Tan joined the Microfluidics and Microengineering Research Group, School of Engineering and Technology at the University of Hertfordshire in 2002 as a research assistant. She 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 concerning active microfluidic mixers in 2006. Christabel’s PhD research encompasses the design, fabrication and quantification of a PDMS/Glass microfluidic mixer employing piezoelectrically-actuated microvalves to achieve independent, alternate injection for rapid mixing. She obtained an MBA in 2016 and a NEBOSH H&S qualification in 2017.

Her research interest is focussed in the area of fabrication process development, mainly around the development of novel microfabrication techniques and processes for microfluidic devices, systems and applications. She contributes and manage research activties on both commerically and publically funded projects.

Christabel is currently a Senior Research Fellow with the group and is responsible for the development and fabrication of microengineered devices whilst managing the group's microfabrication and lab facilities.
