Miao Guo is currently a Senior Lecturer at Department of Engineering, King's College London.

Miao Guo currently holds a membership of the EPSRC Early Career Forum in Manufacturing Research, and is a honorary lecturer at Imperial College London.

Prior to moving to King's College London in Nov 2019, Miao Guo was an EPSRC Research Fellow hosted at Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London.

Miao's research experiences in Life Sciences and Chemical Engineering has enabled her to consolidate cross-disciplinary strengths at the interface of Engineering and Natural Sciences. Her lab focuses on interdisciplinary research and experimentally and computationally understands, develops and optimises bioprocesses and waste-to-resource technologies.

In collaboration with international academics and industrial pioneers, Miao has been leading the frontier research to develop new modelling methods and tools as well as new applications of PSE research e.g. waste-to-protein, biomanufacturing, digitalised toxicology. Her research interests include -

  • Optimisation and mathematical programming
  • Biorenewable process simulation and optimisation
  • Hybrid modelling methods
  • Biotechnology for wastewater and resource recovery
  • Microbial protein and biomanufacturing
  • Life cycle sustainability assessment
