INSTITUTE FOR BIOENGINEERING OF CATALONIA
Dr. Jose Yeste (orcid.org/0000-0001-7540-7305) is a postdoctoral researcher at Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC). He obtained his BSc degree in Electronic Engineering at Polytechnic University of Catalonia in 2006. He then started an industry career in the medical sector where he was involved in the design of multiple medical products as a part of a R&D team. In 2011, he transitioned from industry to academia and joined the group of Dr. Rosa Villa at Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona as a research assistant. He received his MSc degree in Micro and Nanoelectronic Engineering in 2012 and his PhD in Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering in 2018 at Autonomous University of Barcelona.
In 2020 he joined the BLOC project. His research focuses on the development of organ-on-a-chip technologies, and he has accumulated skills in nano- and micro-technologies, fabrication of microphysiological systems, and microfluidics. He is particularly experienced in microfabrication and will contribute to overcome the technological challenges of the chip fabrication in the BLOC project.
