Dr Goran Vladisavljevic

Senior Lecturer in Chemical Engineering

Areas of expertise

Expertise: Particle generation and manipulation in microfluidic (lab-on-a-chip) devices; microparticles, nanoparticles, liposomes, and microcrystals; microencapsulation; micromixing and chemical synthesis in microreactors; formulation science; polymer synthesis (molecularly imprinted polymers, photopolymerisation, suspension and bulk polymerisation, electrospinning), healthcare engineering (drug-eluting balloon catheters, controlled drug release, antimicrobial resistance); and energy and environment (carbon capture, biodiesel production, membrane separations).


Goran’s research is focused on the development and manufacturing of smart functional micro and nanoparticles. 

His work focuses on micro and nanoparticles for advanced applications in healthcare engineering, environmental engineering, molecular biology, and chemistry using microfluidic and membrane emulsification devices.

His research group exploits physicochemical and chemical processes/phenomena such as internal phase separation, free-radical polymerisation, nanoprecipitation, crystallisation, ionic crosslinking, and molecular imprinting to tailor composition, morphology and microstructure of fabricated materials. 

In collaboration with other colleagues, he has developed novel hybrid (glass/plastic) reconfigurable microfluidic devices for generation of complex droplets and screening.
