Jiandi Wan is currently a Research Associate in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University. His degrees are in chemistry from Wuhan University (B.S., 1998, M.S., 2001) and Boston University (Ph.D., 2006). Dr. Wan worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University from 2006 to 2009 and moved to Princeton University in 2009. Dr. Wan’s research includes microfluidic approaches for studying red blood cell dynamics and multiphase emulsions, photoinduced electron transfer dynamics, and surface chemistry. His recent work focuses on the material and biophysical applications of microfluidics.

Viewpoint: Slipping through blood flow

Simulations provide insight into how viscous flow transforms the shapes of red blood cells, which may influence their physiological properties. Read More »
