About Daniel's research on automated Point-of-Care devices for portable early disease detection

My research targets the development of automated Point-of-Care devices for portable early disease detection, using biomarker-based immunoassays and GMR biosensors. Specifically, I focus on the development, design, fabrication process and device integration of a microfluidic chip interfacing to the GMR biosensor. Additionally, my research involves modeling, optimization, simulation and control of the system dynamics, system integration and product development.
