Research Summary

Alex's current research focuses on the development of novel computational approaches able to integrate, organize and guide experimental (and modeling) information across multiple scales, i.e., all the way from metabolic regulation to bioprocess monitoring and control. Thus, his research explores the boundaries between traditional Process Systems Engineering, Systems Biology and Applied Biotechnology in order to:

  1. Better understand cell physiology and metabolism under industrial bioprocessing conditions
  2. Identify key parameters affecting culture efficiency at the metabolic, bioprocess and reactor design level
  3. Enable the model based design and optimisation of industrial scale bioprocesses

Teaching Summary

Alex is currently responsible for the following taught activities:

  • Current Challenges in Mammalian Cell Processing MBI (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/biochemical-engineering/study/mbi-industrial-training/mbi-modules)
