Valeria Garbin is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. Her research group investigates the flow and dynamics of soft matter, using a unique combination of experimental techniques for high-precision dynamic measurements on the microscale. Her strongly collaborative research program will help address challenges including more sustainable and healthier formulated products, targeted drug delivery to cancer cells, and improved bioprocesses for energy and biopharmaceuticals production. Valeria did a postdoc in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, and has held a Rubicon Fellowship in the group of Physics of Fluids at the University of Twente. She has a PhD in Nanotechnology from the Department of Physics of the University of Trieste, and a first degree in Physics from the University of Padova. In 2014 she was awarded an ERC Starting Grant.
