I am Saad Bhamla, a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University. I work with Manu Prakash in the Bioengineering Department. I am currently involved in the research of frugal science and development of instrumentation with applications in biophysics and global health. My background is in soft matter, particularly rheology, thin-film dynamics, and soft biological materials. I received my PhD in Chemical Engineering from Stanford (2015). My thesis advisor was Professor Gerry Fuller. I received my Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (2010).
