Assoc. Prof. Dmitry Grishenkov

Co-Founder CAViTreat

Dmitry is an Associate Professor at the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Health Systems, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.  His research is focused on the understanding of the dynamics of multiphase medium in biomedical applications; investigation of the nature and mechanism of cavitation, acoustic droplet vaporization and sonoporation; characterization of structural and physical properties of microbubbles. Moreover, recent work has been dedicated to the characterization of the microbubble behavior in microfluidic system where the hydrodynamics and external acoustic effects were evaluated. This research opens up new horizons of the microbubbles application as a novel unique device for lab-on chip experiments.
