Sindy Tang PhD
Prof. Sindy KY Tang is an associate professor of Mechanical Engineering and by courtesy of Radiology (Precision Health and Integrated Diagnostics) at Stanford University. She received her Ph.D. from Harvard University in Engineering Sciences, M.S. from Stanford University in Electrical Engineering, and B.S. from Caltech in Electrical Engineering. Her research laboratory at Stanford works on the fundamental understanding of fluid mechanics and mass transport in micro-nano systems, and the application of this knowledge towards problems in biology, rapid diagnostics for health and environmental sustainability. The current areas of focus include the flow physics of micro-droplets using experimental and machine learning methods, and ultrahigh throughput opto-microfluidic systems for disease diagnostics, drug screening, and single-cell studies. She was a Stanford Biodesign Faculty Fellow in 2018. She is currently the site director of the NSF Science and Technology Center for Cellular Construction, and is on the editorial advisory board of the journal Biomicrofluidics. Prof. Tang’s work has been recognized by multiple awards including the NSF CAREER Award, and she has been invited to lecture at the Nobel Symposium on Microfluidics in Sweden.
