Axel Guenther joined the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto in 2006 as an assistant professor, and is cross-appointed at the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering. Mr. Guenther obtained his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and conducted postdoctoral research with Klavs F. Jensen and Martin A. Schmidt at MIT.
His group is interested in linking the unique behavior of fluids in micro and nanoscale confinements with the design, fabrication and characterization of integrated microfluidic platforms. Such systems promise new ways for solution-based nanomaterial synthesis and manufacturing, and for the assembly of bulk materials with a regular three-dimensional microstructure.
