Microfabrication and Exploratory Nanotechnology
Patrícia Sousa is a Research Engineer of the Microfabrication and Exploratory Nanotechnology Group at INL. Her research activities focus on microfluidics and micro- and nanofabrication, in particular nanoimprint lithography and soft-lithography.
Patrícia received her PhD in chemical and biological engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto and postdoctoral experience at the same faculty. She has a background in soft-lithography technique and microfluidics, with emphasis on the flow of polymeric solutions. Before joining INL, she was invited Assistant Professor in the chemical and mechanical departments of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto.
