Upstream Processing Industrial Trainee
Since September 2016
I am currently working in the Bioprocess Sciences team. My project focuses on scale-down and optimisation of continuous fermentation in perfusion mode (production of CHO-based mAbs). I am developing a clone- and media-screening strategy for perfusion in different scale-down platforms (deep-well plates/shake tubes/lab-scale bioreactors). I am also involved in cost optimisation of continuous mAb production process, with particular emphasis on perfusion and media cost optimisation.
Purification Process Sciences Intern
July 2015 --- September 2015
I was responsible for evaluating an automated pH detection tool using the Tecan M1000 Pro plate reader. I have designed and executed screening studies along with a series of robustness studies to optimise the machine’s performance; I have successfully created a model that can accurately measure pH of protein solutions. I have also evaluated the Host Cell Protein (HCP) levels measurement using the AlphaLisa assay in Tecan.
January 2015 --- March 2015
I engaged in a project related to separating and purifying of proteins present in DDGS (cereal by-product of ethanol distillation) together with a UCL post-doc Maria Villegas-Torres. I was learning experimental techniques vital for downstream processing in a lab/pilot scale (centrifugation, filtration, Osbourne fractionation, chromatography), as well as analytical techniques (SDS-Page, HPLC).
