Cleo KontoravdiSenior Lecturer, at Imperial College London
Cleo Kontoravdi holds M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College London. After working as a R&D Scientist at Lonza Biologics she joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London, where she is an Associate Professor. Her research is dedicated to understanding the interplay between manufacturing process factors and therapeutic protein quality, including glycosylation and purity. To achieve this her group follows a holistic approach that combines experimentation with model-based design and optimisation tools, which are an excellent vehicle for the industrial implementation of Quality by Design.
