Farid Amalou is a research associate at Heriot-Watt University. He did his Msc degree in physics, in 1999, at University of Science and Technology Houari Boumedienne (USTHB) in collaboration with the IPCMS-CNRS in Strasbourg (France). He then moved to Switzerland at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) where he obtained his PhD degree, in 2003, in Micro-Engineering and Micro-Magnetism. His current research interests are mainly in Microsystems, Lab-on-a-chip devices, Micro- and Nano-magnetics and Nanofabrication, including the development of novel microfluidic control platforms for synthetic biology applications.
