MSc Gandhika Wardhana

PhD student
Electronic Components, Technology and Materials (ECTM), Department of Microelectronics

Expertise: Focused ultrasound for neuromodulation

Themes: MEMS Technology, Organs-on-chip


Gandhika K. Wardhana was born in Bekasi, Indonesia. He received his BSc degree in Electrical Engineering in 2015 from Bandung Institute of Technology. Later he moved to the Netherlands to study microelectronics at TU Delft and received his MSc degree in 2019. Afterward, he worked as a researcher in the Zandbergen Lab of the Quantum Nanoscience department at TU Delft. During this time, he was involved in developing a silicon-germanium Peltier cooling device for Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) samples and 2D material imaging with AFM.

Joining the Bioelectronics and ECTM groups in 2020, his PhD research concerns lab-on-a-chip platforms and focused ultrasound transducers.
