Andrew C. Madison is an electrical engineer in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He has experience developing fabrication methods for integrating acoustic, magnetic, and electrostatic devices into digital microfluidics systems, which use the electrowetting effect to manipulate nanoliter-scale droplets on arrays of programmable electrodes in a variety of laboratory-on-chip applications such as DNA sequencing, pathogen detection, and microbial genome engineering. Since joining NIST in 2018 he has worked with Samuel M. Stavis to develop fabrication and measurement methods that aim to overcome a variety of scientific challenges, ranging from the calibration of microscopes for super-resolution optical microscopy to multimodal characterization of colloidal nanoparticles.
