Short Biography
Dr Peggy P.Y. Chan received her PhD in Chemical Engineering from University of New South Wales in 2007. In 2007-2009, she worked as a research scientist at the Institute of Bioengineering & Nanotechnology, A-Star Singapore to develop new polymeric biomaterials for tissue engineering and drug delivery applications. In 2009-2011, she was awarded a fixed term lectureship to undertake biomaterials and microfluidic research at Monash University. In 2012-2014, she was awarded with a senior research fellowship from RMIT University as well as a MCN Tech fellowship from Melbourne Center for Nanofabrication to conduct biomaterials and microfluidic research. She is now a Lecturer (2015-present) at the Department of Telecommunications Electrical Robotics and Biomedical Engineering, Swinburne University of Technology, where her research focused on development of new polymeric materials for microfabrication and development of new microfluidic devices for various bio-applications. During 2016-2017, she also served as a visiting scholar at University of California Berkeley to develop fast-responsive biomaterials and photosensitive polymers for microfluidic single cell analysis.

Areas of expertise
Fast-responsive Polymers, Photosensitive Polymers for Microfabrication, Biomaterials, Microfluidic Devices
