Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology



Cassi is a joint student of the Analytical Biotechnology group in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology and the Fluids in Advanced Manufacturing group at the IfM, under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Hall and Dr. Ronan Daly. Her doctoral research will look to investigate novel materials and printing techniques, which allow optimal structures and function to be fulfilled, by combining abiotic and biotic materials to produce elements for biosensors. The project will focus on the integration of functional materials, assay development and manufacturing design to enable diagnostics to be produced for affordable, rapid, and point-of-care detection of diseases. Prior to starting her PhD, Cassi received her BSE in Bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania and completed a Masters in Bioscience Enterprise at the University of Cambridge, focusing on the commercialization of early stage medical technologies.
