Steve Wereley

Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Birck Nanotechnology Center

Purdue University

Professor Wereley completed his masters and doctoral research at Northwestern University. He joined the Purdue University faculty in August of 1999 after a two-year postdoctoral appointment at the University of California Santa Barbara. During his time at UCSB he worked with a group developing, patenting, and licensing to TSI, Inc., the micro-Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) technique. His current research interests include non-contact particle manipulation, Lab-on-Chip applications, and developing new micro/nano flow diagnostic techniques. Professor Wereley is the co-author of Fundamentals and Applications of Microfluidics (Artech House, 2002 and 2006) and Particle Image Velocimetry: A Practical Guide (Springer, 2007). He is an Associate Editor of Springer's Microfluidics and Nanofluidics Journal.
