Presenter: Robyn Pritchard, Consultant Physicist, The Technology Partnership (TTP) and Andrew Young, Technical Manager, COMSOL
Robyn is a biophysicist for TTP’s life sciences group, where he is currently focused on developing a next generation microfluidic cell sorter for cell therapies. Previously he was a postdoctoral researcher and PhD student at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, where he published a number of papers on polymer physics, viscoelasticity, organ-on-chip, and the mechanics of biological networks.
Andrew studied mathematics at the University of Strathclyde where he went on to undertake his EngD in medical devices. His research involved CFD analysis of patient-specific cardiovascular modelling. Moving to COMSOL in 2014, Andrew is now a technical manager with specialities in heat transfer and fluid flow.
