Jaione Etxebarria: MSc in chemical engineering (2008) and a postgraduate master's degree in engineering of advanced materials (2010) from the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain. In 2008 she joined the Microsystems research group at CIC microGUNE/IK4-Ikerlan (Spain) where she is currently working toward a PhD degree. Now she has joined the MCS group for an internship, where she will employ a liquid flow controlling system, developed during her PhD work for droplet formation application. Her main research interests are focused on design, microfabrication and development of polymeric microfluidic control devices, microvalves and flow sensors for Lab-on-a-chip applications.
