Personal profile

Academic Biography

Zulfiqur has research interests across the science and engineering interface with a focus towards biomedical engineering. His work has included the development of microfluidic devices for point-of-care diagnostic and for complex chemical and biological processing on a chip. Particular interests includes: electrochemical and optical sensing, microfluidics; bionanotechnology; microfabrication and soft computing for primarily pattern recognition. Zulfiqur has been on the International Program Committee for MEDICON a conference of the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) as well as an international panel member for the Higher Education Academy (HEA) of Ireland. He is also an Editorial Board member for the Micromachines journal.

Zulfiqur has coordinated a number of EU projects including FP6 DVT-IMP developing a point-of-care device for Deep Vein Thrombosis, MAPTech for development for Micro-Analytical Platform Technology and FP7 InFuLoC for development of an integrated and Functional Lab-on-chip. Zulfiqur was also involved in the FP7 Diginova project developing a roadmap for digital fabrication. Most recently, he led the Teesside University activity in the Horizon 2020 GateOne project on smart system integration for SMEs as well as a number of InnovateUK projects.

Enterprise Interest and Activities

Zulfiqur is director of Anasyst which a spin-out company from Teesside University. Anasyst is focussed on commercialising Cavity Enhanced Absorption Spectrometry for liquid based sensing, optical ammonia sensing and microfluidics based point-of-care diagnostics. www.anasyst.com
