Dr Peggy Chan



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 nanotechnology 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 currently a Lecturer at the Department of Telecommunications Electrical Robotics and Biomedical Engineering, where her research focused on development of functional materials for microfabrication and development of microfluidic devices for various bio-applications. During 2016-2017, she also served as a visiting scholar at University of California Berkeley to develop photosensitive polymers for microfluidic single cell analysis.
