Julia Radzio

I am a PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics. I am advised by Prof. Paulo Arratia (Penn Complex Fluids Lab) and Prof. David Issadore (Issadore Lab). My research involves designing continuous and droplet-based microfluidic devices for studying biomolecules. Prior to starting at Penn, I worked as a researcher in the Kirby Microfluidics Lab at Cornell University and as a mechanical engineering intern in the CTO group at Applied Materials. I graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University in 2021.
