M. Nicolas CruzSenior Researcher, ETH Zurich, and Process Modeling Expert, DataHow AG at ETH Zurich
Dr. M. Nicolas Cruz B. is Bioprocess Modelling and Automation Expert at DataHow AG as well as the head of the KIWI-biolab. He works intensively in the fields of bioprocess digitalization, model-based tools for biotechnology and biopharma, High Throughput Bioprocess Development, and autonomous biolabs. In the recent years his research has pushed the integration of model-based methods and High Throughput experiments to accelerate bioprocess development. The most relevant results include the first adaptive algorithms for online optimal redesign of parallel experiments and novel hybrid (Machine Learning and dynamical modelling) tools for bioprocess engineering. The driving force of his research is the conviction that robotic systems need proper digital tools, models, and algorithms to fully exploit its capabilities.
