Robert Lovchik


Advanced Senior Engineer


IBM Research Europe - Zurich Zurich, Switzerland


Dr. Robert D. Lovchik joined IBM Research – Zurich as a research engineer in 2007. His current work focuses on the microfluidic probe technology and the development of a microfluidic platform for cellular studies.

Robert studied biotechnology at the University of Applied Sciences (UAS) in Waedenswil (Switzerland) and received his engineer's degree in 2000. He has worked as a teaching assistant in bioprocess technology and environmental technology. He obtained his MSc in Micro- and Nanotechnology from the UAS Vorarlberg (Austria) and his PhD (Doctor of Science) from ETH Zurich in 2014 under the academic supervision of Prof. Viola Vogel. His doctoral thesis was about the Brain Chip project (studying cellular signaling using microfluidics) and the Microfluidic Probe (microscale tissue analysis using the microfluidic probe).
