Nikos Chronis received his B.S. and PhD degrees from Aristotle University (Greece) and University of California at Berkeley in 1998 and 2004 respectively, both in mechanical engineering. In 2000 he joined the Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center at the University of California at Berkeley as a graduate student researcher under... read morethe supervision of Luke Lee. In 2004 he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Cori Bargmann's lab at Rockefeller University (New York) where he developed microfluidic tools for studying neural networks in the nematode C. elegans. In August 2006 he joined the faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan as an assistant professor. His research interests include BioMEMS, microfluidics, optical MEMS for lab-on-chip applications, and in-vivo imaging of neural circuits in C. elegans.
