Research Interests

My research focusses on the safe, sustainable and cost-effective production of the compounds we need using industrial biotechnology. Examples of the areas I work include:

  • Design, scale-up and modelling of bioreactors
  • Development of advanced computational tools to characterise bioreactor performance
  • Hydrodynamics of bioreactors (and other gas-liquid systems)
  • Production of high-value compounds using microalgae
  • Bioprocess development
  • Adding value to ‘waste’ streams
