Federico Paratore joined IBM Research – Zurich in 2016 in the Science and Technology department. His research interests are in transport phenomena at the microscale, with focus on electrokinetics for separations, focusing, and microscale flow control. He is passionate about microfluidic systems from both a theoretical and applied point of view, and his work combines mathematical modeling with experimental validation, characterization and demonstration.
Federico is currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher developing tools for next-generation tumor profiling. He obtained a PhD from Technion – Israel Institute of Technology under the supervision of Dr. Govind Kaigala (IBM) and Prof. Moran Bercovici (Technion). He holds a master's degree cum laude in nanotechnology engineering and a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Sapienza, University of Rome. He also worked in several R&D environments both in the private (Magneti Marelli, Philips) and public (Complutense University, University of Texas) sectors.
