Prof. Nicole Pamme holds a chair in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Hull (UK) in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
Nicole Pamme obtained a Diploma in Chemistry from the University of Marburg (Germany) in 1999. For her PhD studies she went to Imperial College London (UK) where she joined the group of Prof. Andreas Manz. It was here that she first started working with microfluidic devices, more specifically, on single particle analysis inside microfluidic channels. In 2004, she moved to Tsukuba (Japan) as an independent research fellow in the International Centre for Young Scientists (ICYS) based at the Japanese National Institute for Materials Science. She was appointed as a lecturer in Hull in December 2005 and , following a few promotions, reached the rank of Professor in 2014.

Our research evolves around the study of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip devices, which allow precise handling of liquids at microscopic scales. Our group applies lab-on-a-chip technology for environmental analysis on-site, for clinical diagnostics at the point-of-care and the synthesis of smart materials in collaboration with Chemistry, Engineering and Biomedical Sciences.
