Hey! I’m Afshin, a postdoctoral fellow in the Hoare Lab working on developing microfluidic technologies for synthesis of smart materials. I completed my PhD at ETH Zurich (Switzerland), where I developed different microfluidic platforms for controlled synthesis of advanced materials. I am also passionate about entrepreneurship. Outside of the lab, I am a fan of soccer and enjoy traveling, hiking, and watching never-ending thriller TV series!

Hello everyone! I’m Gurpreet, a Master’s student currently working on developing an anti-infective surface coating for medical devices and PPE to eliminate surface transmission of bacteria and viruses. I just completed my B.A.Sc. degree in Nanotechnology Engineering at University of Waterloo with a focus in nanobiotechnology and nanomaterials. In my free time I love roller skating, hiking to find beautiful views and creating new makeup looks!
