Overview/ Research interests
The research project is focussed on the scale up of a range of bioprocesses using the Bioplatform Facility at CeBER. This work allows investigation of a range of scaling factors and provides insight into process design, while also providing proof of concept for a range of new products. These include pigment products, such as the fungal pigments explored during my PhD work, as well as other novel products, including probiotics and vaccines, which are the focus of postgraduate study within the research group.
The Department of Chemical Engineering is part of the Faculty of Engineering & the Built Environment (EBE) at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
