At BIOMATH we develop and apply mathematical models and methodologies for the analysis and optimization of bio-processes. The primary focus is on mechanistic models which are used to support a variety of priority sectors ranging from wastewater treatment and resource recovery to pharmaceutical manufacturing, ecology and bioprocess technology. By doing so, BIOMATH has gained expertise in the fields of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), population balance modelling (PBM) and bio-kinetics.


PhD Defense Wouter
