Department of Chemistry


Dr Ziyi Yu is a Research Associate in Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge. His main research interests focus on applying the microfluidic droplets as an experimental platform for microencapsulation and single cell analysis. Dr Yu was one of the main researchers on microfluidic projects funded by UK Research Council and the European Commission. He also leads several projects funded by Royal Society of Chemistry and Cambridge OpenPlant Funds. His honours and awards include Cambridge University Entrepreneurs 1K Award, Nanjing Recommended Outstanding Talent, and the Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation in Jiangsu Province, China.
