Graduate Students

Steven Doria (PhD)

Steven works on developing novel electrochemical methods of microfluidic separation. Currently he is focusing on developing continuous ITP (isotachophoresis), a mobility-based separation technique which is typically done in batch. Steven holds both a BS and an MS from Johns Hopkins University, both in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.


Md Nazibul Islam (PhD)

Nazib’s research involves developing low-cost fabrication techniques for microfluidic devices and biosensors based on polarizable Interfaces. He joined the lab in Fall ’18 as a PhD student. Nazib holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.


Bhavya Jaiswal (MS)

Bhavya works with paper microfluidics and lab on a chip devices. He joined the lab in Spring 2021 as an MS student. Prior to the Gagnon lab, he worked as a Project Assistant at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore for a year. Bhavya has a BE degree from BITS Pilani, India.


Edwin Lavi (PhD)


Jarad Yost (PhD)

Jarad’s research involves using microfluidics and electrokinetics to drive biochemical reactions on-chip (LAMP, PCR, etc.). He joined the lab in Fall 2018 as an MS student and has continued on as a PhD student. Prior to the Gagnon Lab, he was employed at Boston Biochem. Jarad holds a BS in Chemical & Biological Engineering from Colorado State University and an MS in Chemical Engineering from Texas A&M University.
