Michinao Hashimoto Ph.D.
Principal Investigator
2013 Postdoc (Chemical Engineering), MIT and Boston Children's Hospital
2009 Ph.D. (Chemical Physics), Harvard University

Michinao Hashimoto is the principal investigator of the group. His overarching research theme is microfluidics, both fundamentals and applications. Ongoing research topics include multiphase microfluidics, biomaterials formation, drug delivery, and development of medical and diagnostic devices. He is also interested in reducing the cost of science and technology, and making them accessible to broader range of people. Along this line, his research interest is on low-cost device fabrication and their application in point-of-care setting. Michinao enjoys traveling around, learning new languages, and doing science. To date, he has served as visiting scholars at multiple international institutions, including Polish Academy of Science (Poland), University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), National Tsinghua University (Taiwan), the University of Tokyo (Japan), and Saudi Aramco (Saudi Arabia). Michinao received his B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry/Biophysics from Oregon State University (2003), and Ph.D. degree from Harvard University (2009) under the guidance of Prof. George Whitesides. Prior to joining SUTD, he completed his postdoctoral training at MIT and Children’s Hospital Boston under the guidance of Prof. Daniel Kohane and Prof. Robert Langer.
