Summary

Amirpasha is a lecturer in Medical Engineering at the University of Hull. His research activity is focused on biomanufacturing and biomaterials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. In specific, his research group is involved in development of novel microfluidic devices for 3D bioprinting, wearable sensors and in vitro modelling and their characterisation using advanced techniques available at Harwell Campus.

Amirpasha has over 6 years of research experience in the field of additive manufacturing with >20 publications. Amirpasha has also disseminated his research findings over 10 national and international conferences of which 2 were invited. Throughout his career, his contribution to his research field has been extremely innovative; he produced the first micro-scale design approach for material extrusion additive manufacturing which has been used for a wide range of applications including tissue engineering, 3D printed electronics, microfluidics, prosthetics. He has also developed the first modular and versatile 3D-printed microfluidic chip nozzles for 3D bioprinting, and he is working on commercialising this technology.

He strives to use rigorous engineering research to drive additive manufacturing and medical manufacturing beyond the current state-of-the-art. His work is driven by multidisciplinary collaboration between clinicians, biologists and industry. He is working on several projects with universities in Italy, Japan and within the UK.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you think there may be scope for collaboration or if you’re considering postgraduate research.
