Cleo Kontoravdi, Remote - Live with Q & AProfessor of Biological Systems Engineering at Imperial College London
Cleo Kontoravdi is Reader in Biosystems Engineering at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London. Her research focuses on the application of systems engineering principles to bioprocessing. A large part of it is dedicated to understanding what process factors control the quality of therapeutic protein products and controlling these to achieve better production and quality targets. To achieve this, her group follows a holistic approach that combines experimentation with model-based design and optimization tools, which is an excellent vehicle for the industrial implementation of Quality by Design. She holds M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College London.
