Biography

Dr Kersaudy-Kerhoas is an Royal Academy of Engineering Fellow in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University. She holds a research MSc degree in micro and nanotechnologies from the Technical University of Lille (France), and an MSc degree from the Institut Superieur de l’Electronique et du Numerique (Brest-Lille, France). She was awarded a PhD at Heriot-Watt in July 2010. This study involved the development of a microfluidic chip for blood plasma extraction for detection of cell-free nucleic acids (DNA, RNA).  In 2014 she was elected as a member of EPSRC Early Career forum in Manufacturing Research.
