Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Birck Nanotechnology Center
Purdue UniversityProfessor Wereley completed his masters and doctoral research at Northwestern University. He joined the Purdue University faculty in August of 1999 after a two-year postdoctoral appointment at the University of California Santa Barbara. During his time at UCSB he worked with a group developing, patenting, and licensing to TSI, Inc., the micro-Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) technique. His current research interests include non-contact particle manipulation, Lab-on-Chip applications, and developing new micro/nano flow diagnostic techniques. Professor Wereley is the co-author of Fundamentals and Applications of Microfluidics (Artech House, 2002 and 2006) and Particle Image Velocimetry: A Practical Guide (Springer, 2007). He is an Associate Editor of Springer's Microfluidics and Nanofluidics Journal.
