Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering

Research Interests:

The overarching goal of Dr. Ma’s research is the development of new technologies for medical research and treatment. The laboratory works to advance fabrication, measurement, and computation across a wide range of domains and length scales. The laboratory’s core capabilities include microfabrication, microfluidics, instrumentation, product development, as well as data analytics and visualization. Current research areas include the development of new technologies for cell sorting, cell deformability, chemotaxis, single cell sequencing, and image cytometry; as well as the application of these technologies to evaluate blood quality, test immune cell function, personalize cancer therapies, and expedite antimalarial drug development.
