Dr Rezk’s research expertise in acoustic microfluidics has led to breakthrough discoveries in fundamental fluid flow and the fabrication of novel acoustic devices.
Mechanical engineering and surface acoustic waves; acoustic microfluidics; microfluidic wetting phenomena; micro-fabrication.
He collaborated with RMIT’s research leaders in materials science to produce the world first surface acoustic wave material to replace graphene due to its superior electronic properties.
Further collaborations with RMIT’s research leaders in nano bubble dynamics produced a patterned array of micro droplets using a novel solvent exchange method for applications such as nano lenses, single cell cancer treatment and heating devices for water treatment.
He has collaborations with researchers from across the globe including the Israel Institute of Technology, Institute of Sensor and Actuator Technology (Germany)and the National University of Singapore (NUS) and is establishing new collaborations with stem cell experts at CSIRO, The City College of New York and Monash Institute of Medical Research.
Dr Rezk was awarded a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2015 and is based in the School of Engineering.
