An Integrated Modelling/Experimental Framework for Protein-producing Animal Cell Cultures.
|2002||MEng in Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London|
My interests lie in the area of biotechnology, with particular focus on the application of systems engineering principles to bioprocessing. My research involves the systematic integration of model-based tools, such as sensitivity analysis, design of experiments and optimisation, with experimentation on mammalian cell culture systems. Topics of interest include optimisation of culture media and conditions productivity, protein glycosylation, metabolic flux analysis and multiscale modelling.
