Dr Mukesh Kumar

Post Doctoral Impact Fellow


I graduated with BEng Electronic Systems Engineering (first class honours) from Lancaster Engineering followed by research work in Microbiofluidics and its application in next generation medical diagnostics. I completed my PhD in condensed matter and material physics research group from Lancaster Physics. I have established strong collaboration with Royal Lancaster Infirmary (Microbiology, Biochemistry and Critical Care Units) and a local SME to promote industry - academic partnership. I have also collaborated with academics from Faculty of Health and Medicine at Lancaster for inter faculty consortium.

My research activities have been supported through the following research grants: Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS, London), Higher Education Innovation Fund (UK), Leverhulme Trust (UK), Dowager Eleanor Peel Trust (UK), Faculty of Science and Technology (Lancaster University), EPSRC Impact Acceleration Award.
