Professor 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 technique. His current research interests include opto/electrokinetics, investigating microscopic biological flows, harnessing diffusion for sensing applications, and developing new ways of measuring flows at the smallest length scales. 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 on the editorial board of Experiments in Fluids and is an Associate Editor of Springer’s Microfluidics and Nanofluidics. Professor Wereley has edited Springer’s recent Encyclopedia of Microfluidics and Nanofluidics and Kluwer’s BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology.
