Andrea has been working on the recently-launched kompAsTM commercialisation of ultra scale-down at UCL Biochemical Engineering, but we’re very pleased to share the good news that last month she has been made a lecturer in bioseparations (Downstream Processing) here in UCL Biochemical Engineering. Andrea will continue work on kompAsTM through knowledge transfer activities, lead the research and development of next generation ultra scale-down technologies and the wider area of bioseparations for primary recovery or downstream processing.
