Dr Felipe Iza


  • Reader in Bioelectrics and Healthcare Deputy Associate Dean (Research)


Felipe Iza received the B.S. degree in engineering from the University of Navarra, San Sebastian (Spain), in 1997, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Northeastern University, Boston MA (USA), in 2001 and 2004, respectively.

From 1997 to 1999, he was with the Centro de Estudios e Investigaciones Tecnicas de Guipuzcoa, San Sebastian (Spain). From 2004 to 2006, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow with Pohang University of Science and Technology, Pohang (Korea), where he became a Research Professor in 2006. Since 2007, he has been with Loughborough University, Leicestershire, U.K., where he is a Senior Lecturer in Bioelectrics and Health Care in the School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering. He has served as Director of Postgradaute Research and currently as deputy Associate Dean for Research.

His research interest is focused on experimental and computational low-temperature plasma physics and engineering, with special attention to microplasmas and atmospheric discharges for biomedical and environmental applications.
