Ernestine Hui is a research student working towards a PhD in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene Technology.

Her PHD project title is: Graphene-based brain on a chip platform for the study of neurodegeneration. Her first supervisor is Dr Gabriele S Kaminski Schierle and her second supervisor is Dr Antonio Lombardo.

Ernestine’s PHD project aims to design and fabricate an on-chip platform for studying neuron communication along a single axon. The devices will consist of wells separated by microfluidic channels. Transparent electrodes consisting of graphene or other two-dimensional materials will be placed along the microfluidic channels, allowing simultaneous recording of electrochemical signals and super-resolution imaging. Graphene will be grown by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) and cleanroom-based micro-fabrication techniques will be used to fabricate the chip.

Ernestine is part of the Chemical Engineering department and she is a member of Lucy Cavendish College.
