2023 Fellow

Vesna Bacheva

PhD Institution
Technion Israel Institute of Technology

Vesna’s PhD involved developing a new concept for microscale flow control that enables programmable microfluidic devices. As a Fellow, she will pivot from mechanical engineering to plant sciences, where she plans to develop new technologies and models to study the transport of nutrients in plants. She hopes that her research will fill a critical gap in our current understanding of plants that can enable progress in the productivity, substantiality, and profitability of crop-based agriculture in an increasingly food-insecure world.
