Prof. Kamal is an international leading figure in polymer processing and characterization. Dr. Kamal’s research covers injection and blow molding, film blowing and casting, polymeric nanocomposites and blends, computer simulation, thermal and rheological characterization, surface energy effects in processing, and more. He is recognized as the pioneer in “establishing the scientific basis for modeling of injection molding”. In recent years, he has made significant contributions to the development of micro/nano fabrication method for polymer based devices.
Prof. Dongqing Li
Dr. Dongqing Li is the Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) Professor in Microfluidics and Nanofluidics in the University of Waterloo. Dr. Li is an internationally leading expert in the area of electrokinetic-based microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip technology. Dr. Li has developed several lab-on-a-chip devices including real-time PCR, immunoassay and flow cytometer. Dr. Li has published over 230 papers in top international journals, 31 book chapters and 3 books. He is the Editor-in-Chief of an international journal—Microfluidics and Nanofluidics, and an organizer of several major international conferences in this area.
Prof. Michael D. Gilchrist
Michael D. Gilchrist is the head of school at School of Mechanical and Material Engineering at University College Dublin. His research concerns the dynamic mechanical behaviour of non-linear materials, including both biological tissue and polymer materials. This has applications relevant to impact biomechanics of human body and micro injection moulding of polymers. Intellectual property from his research has been licensed to eight separate research groups in Ireland, UK, Belgium, US, Canada and Singapore.
