Emilie Dressaire

Assistant Professor

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering


Emilie Dressaire received her undergraduate degree in Physics and Chemical Engineering from ESPCI (France) and her masters degree in Biophysics from the University of Paris. She graduated with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Harvard University in 2009. During her graduate studies, she studied the shaping fluid-fluid interfaces through capillary, elastic, and gravitational effects. After spending one year as a postdoctoral research fellow at McGill University (Canada), she joined the Trinity College faculty as an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering.

Her research endeavors to discern the fundamental mechanisms that govern particle-laden flows in confined fluidic environments and flow-microstructure interactions. Her group leverages the simplicity of microfluidic technology and macrofluidic experiments and applies external fields to understand and control flow-particle interactions in engineered and biological systems.
