Prof David Bogle undertakes research and teaching in process design and process control for both chemical and biochemical processes and in Systems Biology. He is currently also Head of UCL's Graduate School and chair of the Steering Group of the League of European Research Universities Doctoral Studies Community.

Prof Bogle is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow the Royal Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers.

Prof Bogle studied Chemical Engineering at Imperial College at both undergraduate and graduate levels, receiving his PhD in 1983. Following this, he worked on modelling and control projects for British Gas before taking a position as lecturer at the University of Adelaide from 1986 until 1990. Prof Bogle joined UCL as a lecturer in 1990. In 2006, he was Director of the Centre for Process Systems Engineering, a joint Centre between Imperial College and UCL and is currently its Deputy Director.   In 2005 he was appointed Head of the UCL Graduate School.

Research Interests

Prof Bogle's research interests are in modelling, global optimisation and controllability of process systems and in Systems Biology. He has been working on engineering approaches to systems problem involving molecular change in human liver systems (the major chemical factory of the body), in endothelial cell structure and signalling, and in cancer protein networks through UCL's CoMPLEX (Centre  for Mathematics and Physics in the Life Sciences and Experimental Biology).  He has work in the use of interval methods for obtaining globally optimal solutions particularly in modular process design systems.  He also works on developing methodolgies for designing nonlinear process systems with better controllability properties.
