Usama Attia

Locality: United Kingdom
Summary: Usama has a background in Mechanical Engineering with a speciality in Industrial Engineering. He gained his MSc at the Danish Polymer Centre at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). He joined the Materials Department at Cranfield University, UK, where he gained his PhD in the field of polymer micro-moulding for microfluidic medical applications. As a research fellow, his current research is focused on powder micro-moulding of metallic micro-components, with special focus on microfluidics. === Selected Publications === Attia UM, Alcock JR.
