Episode 010 – Biophysics and Microfluidics With Matthew Stilwell

Episode 10! Our first milestone! Thank you all so much for your support thus far. We are excited for the next ten episodes, and the next ten, and so on!

In this episode, we chat with Matthew Stilwell, a biophysics graduate student from The University of Wisconsin Madison. In his research, he focuses on the physical properties, and development of microfluidic devices used in the search for antibiotics.

We chat about:

  1. What does Matt do?
  2. What is a microfluidic device?
  3. Bacteria, and how they kill other bacteria.
  4. Matt’s worst moment story
