Personal profile

Research interests

Her interests include ultrasonic sensors, ultrasonic transducers fabrication, micro-fabrication, transducer arrays, acoustofluidics, acoustic particle manipulation and piezoelectric materials.

Acoustic manipulation enable high throughput, dynamic and precise control of micro-particles such as living cells and drugs carriers. Such technology can be integrated with sensors to allow further analyses of manipulated particles. Applications of these technologies include all kind of living biological cell studies such as sorting, filtering and concentrating, and further to bio-engineering such as controlled tissue culture.

Biography

Anne L. Bernassau was born in Paris, France and earned her Ph.D. degree from the Institute of Medical Science and Technology at the University of Dundee, UK in 2009. Her PhD topic was on “Micro-engineering for high frequency ultrasound arrays”. She joined the University of Glasgow on the collaborative project “Electronic sonotweezers: particle manipulation with ultrasonic arrays” and pioneered acoustic multi-transducers manipulation for the use of bio-engineering and targeted drug delivery applications. 

After the success of sonotweezers, she secured a 4 year Lord Kelvin Adam Smith fellowship as an independent academic researcher.
