Oriol Ymbern


Oriol was born in Barcelona and received his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) at the Group of Sensors and Biosensors (GSB). His background in prototyping of microfluidics platforms based on polymer fabrication technology for analytical applications led him to Canada for his first postdoc at McGill University. At the Juncker Lab he applied capillary driven microfluidics for diagnostics, leading a team for the development of a COVID-19 serology test. In his second postdoc stage at the Shih Microlab he is working in the integration of electrochemical (bio)sensing in autonomous microfluidic platforms in collaboration with an industrial partner.
