Lecturer in Chemical Engineering, Loughborough University

My research is focused on the development of new microprocess engineering and process intensification concepts applied to biological and pharmaceutical systems. The multidisciplinary research themes span from microfluidics, surface chemistry, crystallisation, fermentation, cell culture, chromatography, electrophoresis, virus inactivation and clinical diagnostics areas. Main goal is to deliver disruptive technologies to fill up main technological gaps and unmet needs in high-value market sectors of (bio)pharmaceuticals and healthcare diagnostics. This requires a multi-scale approach by understanding the processes at meso-, micro- and nano-scale, all supported by state-of-the-art analytical tools and numerical modeling tools such as CFDs
