Dr Antonio del Rio Chanona is an EPSRC Research Fellow hosted at the Centre for Process Systems Engineering at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London.

He holds a PhD from the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge, and a BSc from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)

His research brings together both foundations from the systems domain such as optimisation and control, and applies them to bioprocess modelling, intensification and scale-up.
