Description of Research
Dr. Macia's research is directed at developing instrumentation (sensors and systems) for processes involving fluid flow, its measurement and control. Specific areas of research include fluid filtration, respiratory mechanics and fluidic sensors. In fluid filtration, he is involved with water filtration systems and the methods used to evaluate the effectiveness of the process. In respiratory mechanics, he is involved in non-invasive measurement of respiratory parameters (resistance, compliance and inertance). He is also involved with the measurement of respiratory flow non-invasively.

Dr. Macia is also developing fluidic approaches for measuring gas concentration, temperature and other variables in environments of high temperature, radiation or vibration.
