FEATURED SPEAKER

MIRELA ALISTAR

Mirela Alistar was a Postdoc at Prof. Baudisch’s Human Computer Interaction Lab at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Germany. She is now an Assistant Professor at the ATLAS Institute and Department of Computer Science at CU Boulder. In 2014, Mirela received her PhD in computer engineering from the Technical University of Denmark, where she worked on system-level design of embedded systems with a special focus on digital microfluidic biochips. In her research, Mirela investigates the extent to which can we change healthcare to make it a personal process. So far, Mirela has built systems based on biochips to serve as personal laboratories: small portable devices that people can own and use to develop customized bio-protocols (“bio-apps”).

Mirela’s work is published at top-tier journals and conferences (IEEE TCAD) and demonstrated at venues such as IEEE ESWeek and Molecular Communications. Mirela has served as guest editor for Current Biotechnology Journal (CBNT) and as reviewer for venues such as Applied Materials and Interfaces, TCAD, ToDAES, and NanoCom. In order to engage society in critical discourse on technology, Mirela has led and founded community wetlabs in Copenhagen and Berlin, where she organizes monthly workshops to promote personal biochips to enthusiasts of diverse backgrounds (e.g., engineering, art, design). You can learn more about Mirela’s work at her personal website: personallab.org.
