Lucas Armbrecht studied microsystems technology at the University of Freiburg (Breisgau, Germany). During his master’s, he focused on sensors & actuators and lab-on-a-chip systems. Since June 2015, he is PhD student in the Bioanalytics Group at ETH Zurich (Switzerland). In his doctoral studies, he is developing a microfluidic method for the multi-parameter measurement on selectively trapped single cells.
