Matthew DiSalvo

Matthew DiSalvo is a Johns Hopkins PREP Postdoctoral Researcher in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He received a B.S. in Biological Engineering from Cornell University, and a doctorate in Biomedical Engineering from UNC at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. His doctoral research involved the automation of microraft array cell-sorting microdevices for stem cell processing. He also developed analytical techniques for gut-on-a-chip applications. Matt is working with Gregory Cooksey on developing optofluidic microfabricated cytometers.
