Microdevice designer in the biosensing and bioseparations field of study. His expertise is based in the design and test of microfluidic devices. Dr. Martinez obtained the PhD with a thesis based on the integration of passive micromixing technology in a Surface Plasmon Resonance biosensor project developed collaboratively among the Institute of Photonics and Electronics of Czech Republic.
In 2016 he collaborated at the Micro/Nanofluidic BioMEMS Group of Professor Jongyoon Han at MIT- Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the development of low-cost microfabrication technologies for inertial microfluidic devices. From 2017 he is an Associate Research Professor at Tecnologico de Monterrey in the Mechanical Engineering department. Dr. Israel Martínez is the leader of the DIROBONE project at Tec de Monterrey.
