Dr Axel Hochstetter

  • Honorary Research Associate (School of Engineering)

Research interests

My research mostly takes place at the interfaces of traditional scientific disciplines:

  • Microfluidics
  • Parasitology and Infections (mostly with trypanosomes)
  • Diagnostics
  • Optical Tweezing and Microscopy
  • Particle/cell and cell/cell separation
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Biomedical engineering
  • Artificial blood-brain-barriers
