Area of Expertise

Animal cell culture technologies, miniature bioreactors, high throughput technologies, scale translation in bioreactors

Career Profile

I believe that robust framework for rapid bioprocess development using scale down bioreactors is the future for process optimization of biopharmaceutical product such as antibodies, vaccines. For existing processes, the improvement in process development is needed to define the basis for rapid and accurate reproducibility and product formation of biopharmaceuticals. My interest lies on the parallel microwell based systems and miniature bioreactors to speed up the bioprocess development of mammalian cell culture.
